Haydn String Quartet in F minor op 55 no 2 The Razor
Janáček String Quartet no 2 Intimate Letters

It is said that Haydn traded his ‘best manuscript’ for a pair of razors, resulting in the unusual nickname of the opening quartet in tonight’s concert. An RCM string quartet joins forces with the Sacconi Quartet for Shostakovich’s pieces for string octet, which he began writing at the same time as his first symphony.

Tickets: £5
