Skipton Music Presents: Bloomsbury Quartet
As a former Wigmore Hall/Open Academy Fellowship Ensemble, the Bloomsbury Quartet is passionate about engaging audiences with thought-provoking programmes…
Here the group presents a unique ‘concert experience’ that combines performance ‘in the round’ with a multimedia exhibition on the life and works of one of the finest composers the British Isles have ever produced: Dame Elizabeth Violet Maconchy LeFanu (1907-1994).
Bookended by an early and late string quartet, the concert also features music by Maconchy’s teacher Ralph Vaughan Williams, daughter Nicola LeFanu and Leoš Janáček, a key influence during the composer’s later studies in Prague.
