Apollon Musagète Quartet
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Polish foursome the Apollon Musagte Quartet have been hailed as one of the most exciting young quartets on the planet " winners of numerous international awards; BBC New Generation Artists from 2012 to 2014; and with performances from Paris to Vienna, Beijing to Vancouver conveying their lively, fresh, energetic style.

For their International Festival debut, they bring together the boldness and brightness of Mozarts high-spirited Dissonance Quartet with the remarkable orchestral richness of Griegs G minor Quartet, whose devilish energy and folksy rawness conjure up the rhythmic vitality of his Norwegian homeland. They open with the aching emotion of Puccinis poignant Crisantemi.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
