Our Associate Artists begin their latest concert with a work written by the 18 year old Schubert in 1815. Described as the young composer’s Miracle Year, it also saw him produce two symphonies, nine religious orchestral works, four short operas, and over 160 songs. Equally prolific, although over a longer period through the 19th century was Emilie Mayer, known in her lifetime as the Female Beethoven. Born in Germany in 1812, Mayer is considered by some to be the most prolific female composer of the Romantic period. Her melodically rich first quartet which we hear this evening is one of seven she wrote along with eight symphonies, 15 concert overtures, and numerous chamber works. Beethoven concludes the programme with the third and last of the composer’s Razumovsky quartets.
The Chiaraoscuro Quartet are Turner Sims Associate Artists 2021-23. A further performance in 2021-22 takes place on 21 June 2022
