“The Leonkoro Quartet has given me a most pleasant surprise: ravishing quartet playing, the likes of which I haven’t heard for a long time.” Those are the words of composer Wolfgang Rihm lionizing this ensemble. Founded in 2019, it is among the most exciting newcomers on the chamber-music scene. The quartet has a special relationship with Rihm’s music, and at this concert it will introduce us to his mysterious, allusive Ninth String Quartet. The other two items on the programme are repertoire classics: Haydn’s Op. 33 No. 3 with its main theme suggesting birdsong and Schumann’s romantic, melodious A major Quartet.
