A sumptuous evening of music, concluding with Dvořák’s 'American' quartet.

Opening with Suk’s Meditation on the Chorale St Wenceslas and including the African-American composer Burleigh’s quartet settings of two spirituals, this sumptuous evening of music concludes with Dvořák’s most famous quartet.

This turbulent and thrilling selection of music tracks the relationship between nineteenth century quartet writing in eastern Europe and the musical conversations that played a decisive role in the evolution of chamber music.
