Gringolts Quartet

Plays Brahms, Haydn & Widmann

Led by international violin soloist Ilya Gringolts, the quartet plays Brahms, Haydn and Widmann.

Haydn String Quartet in D Op 50 No 6 ‘The Frog’
Jörg Widmann Quartet No 3 ‘The Hunt’
Brahms String Quartet No 3 in B flat Op 67

Led by international violin soloist Ilya Gringolts, the Gringolts Quartet has dazzled audiences from Salzburg to London’s Wigmore Hall with its remarkable technical prowess and its raw, radiant, revealing accounts of music old and new.

Brahms’s bright, sunny and exquisitely crafted Third Quartet closes their rich, witty International Festival debut recital. It follows Haydn’s brilliantly comic ‘The Frog’ Quartet, and the darker humour of contemporary German composer Jörg Widmann’s fantastical ‘The Hunt’ Quartet – which ends in a literal musical hunt of one of the quartet players.

This concert was broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
