The celebrated Coull Quartet, who have been on the international stage for several decades, will give a fundraising concert in the galleries of the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) in Bristol. The programme of music reflects the ethos of the Academy as it includes works of sheer beauty alongside those which excite and challenge.
The concert will begin with the first string quartet of Mozart’s much-loved set of six dedicated to Haydn, his Quartet in G K387, a sublime composition, and will finish with Dvorak’s radiant, yet nostalgic, ‘American’ Quartet, one of his most popular works. Between these two quartets, the Coull will play Derek Smith’s Fifth Quartet, a powerful and moving work written in contemplation of human suffering whether at the hand of man or as a result of natural disasters, and a short elegy by Puccini, the supremely beautiful Crisantemi.
The RWA is located on Queen's Road, Clifton (where Queen's Road meets Whiteladies Road), opposite the University of Bristol Victoria Rooms.
