BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Wihan Quartet

LSO St Luke's Tenth Birthday Festival

Tue 26 Mar 2013 1pm - Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke's, London

Overview

Wihan Quartet

Wihan Quartet

MOZART String Quartet in D minor, K421
DVORAK String Quartet in F major, Op 96 (‘American’)

Wihan Quartet

According to his wife Constanze, the rising figures of Mozart’s String Quartet in D minor corresponded to her frequent cries from the room next door. Although composed while Dvořák was on holiday in a predominantly Bohemian farming community in Iowa, his ‘American’ String Quartet mimics the birdsong of the native Scarlet Tanager which Dvořák heard while out hiking in the countryside.
