Brodsky Quartet and Martin Roscoe piano
Gina McCormack violin, Ian Belton violin
Paul Cassidy viola, Jacqueline Thomas cello
Elgar: String Quartet in E minor, Op. 83
Elgar: Sonata for Violin & Piano in E minor, Op. 82
Elgar: Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 84
These three contrasting yet characteristic works were amongst Elgar’s last great masterpieces, all composed in 1918 around the time of his cello concerto. Even Edward Elgar himself knew there was something unique about his Piano Quintet, a haunted, impassioned work written in the embers of the First World War, describing it as “ghostly stuff”.
The Brodsky Quartet’s energy and craftsmanship have attracted numerous awards and accolades worldwide, whilst Martin’s exceptional piano playing is well-known to Keswick audiences. When one of Britain’s most dynamic string quartets comes together with one of our favourite pianists to play one of our greatest composer’s music, you know to expect something special.
