Sunday 18 February 2024 at 3pm


Haydn - String Quartet in C major Op. 20 No.2

Grazyna Bacewicz - String Quartet No.4 (1951)

Schubert - String Quartet No.14 in D minor, 'Death and the Maiden'

The Behn String Quartet has won plaudits for award-winning performances across Europe and beyond.  In 2018 a review in the New Zealand Herald reported ‘a performance that left the audience silently spellbound for several seconds before bursting into enthusiastic applause, recognizing the magic cast throughout the auditorium by this talented quartet.’ It will be fascinating to witness their interpretation of the second movement of Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” quartet.
