The Allegri Quartet, in its 62nd year, is Britain's oldest chamber group. Founded in 1953 by Eli Goren and William Pleeth it has played a key role in the British musical scene, working with composers such as Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett, Elizabeth Maconchy, Anthony Payne and James MacMillan.  Their latest recordings include the Beethoven opus 18 quartets that received a double 5 star review and chamber music disc of the month accolade from the BBC Music Magazine.

The first half of their concert will start with one of Haydn’s most effervescent works, and finish with Sheffield composer, Ray Kohn’s 19th string quartet with its Kol Nidre second movement. Their evening will be capped by a performance of one of the greatest chamber works ever composed, one of Beethoven’s last, his opus 132.
