14th May / 7:30pm / Newbury Festival
Thomas Adès’ bold and mysterious Four Quarters for string quartet charts the dart and flow of time across its four movements: from the chattering dusk of ‘Nightfall’ to the tick-tock droplets of ‘Morning Dew’, pharm the steady pulse of ‘Days’, viagra approved and ‘The Twenty-Fifth Hour’ where time at last seeps beyond the measure of the clock face. A concert of depth and sparkle, the programme also includes Ravel’s glittering miniature concerto for harp and the sumptuous Gran Partita in B-flat, Mozart’s Serenade No. 10 for 13 wind instruments.
