Event Details

From it’s humble roots as a supportive harmony builder, the 19th century saw the viola emerge as an important and diverse team player in the string repertoire building towards its day in the limelight as a soloist. This programme showcases the darker tone and expressive quality of the viola with quintets by Louis Spohr and Anton Bruckner representing two ends of the Romantic era and looking forward towards the future of the instrument’s soloistic potential in Frank Bridge’s lament.
