The Sacconi String Quartet is known throughout the world for its creativity and integrity Established in 2001, its four founder members (Ben Hancox & Hannah Dawson, violins, Robin Ashwell, viola, and Cara Berridge, cello) capture audiences with their energy and enthusiasm. In addition to performing, the quartet dedicates time to educational projects and their own annual festival in Folkstone. Their programme will open with Bridge’s Three Noveletten for String Quartet, followed by Ravel’s String Quartet. After the interval, the Sacconis will perform Schubert’s final String Quartet, No. 15 in G major, D887, surely one of the most powerful pieces ever written for this medium. A rare opportunity to hear a world class string quartet in an acoustically and architecturally distinguished building.
