A firm favourite with Music at Paxton audiences, the Doric Quartet is now considered to be the leading British string quartet. Their programme opens with the evocative sounds of Thomas Adès, one of today’s finest and most lyrical composers. Premiered in New York in 2011, this intriguing work describes a day’s progress from nightfall to ‘the 25th hour’. It is followed by one of Beethoven’s best loved quartets and the programme concludes in a sensational joining of forces with Ibragimova and Tiberghien in Chausson’s rarely performed masterpiece.
