CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Artist in Residence Series

Haydn – Op. 50, no.2
Piazzolla – Four for Tango
Debussy – Quartet in G Minor Op. 10

The final concert in their residency sees the Carduccis turn their attention to Debussy in this his centenary year. One of his early works (from 1893), the Quartet in G minor was the only string quartet he wrote, and yet is a much-loved work in the repertoire. Full of impressionistic fluidity, it was a clear statement from the composer of a desire to break away from the formality and strictures of music from Germany and Austria. Haydn’s Quartet Op. 50, no. 2 – the second of the Prussian Quartets – shows that convention has its place, however, and is a fine example of the traditional structure that both informed and sparked Debussy’s quest for a new, French sound.

Running Time: 60 mins (approx.)
