Hinde Street Methodist Church, London, and Wigmore Hall, Wigmore Street London
Having been recognised for their dynamic and thoughtful perfomances, The Vertavo Quartet visits London on 2 and 4 October to showcase their musical abilities for an English audience.
The Norwegian quartet will play prestigious Wigmore Hall on 4 October for a so-called “coffee concert”. So if string quartets, lots of charm and something warm to drink is your cup of tea, head down to London’s Wigmore Hall for a relaxed day-event with a selection of Haydn, Dvorak and Brahms.
On 2 October, the group will play a concert at Hinde Street Methodist Church for a “Musicians for Peace and Disarmament” event. The musical selection will consist of Haydn’s String Quartet Op.103, Dvorak’s ‘Cypresses’, Janacek String Quartet No.1 “Kreutzer Sonata”, as well as Brahms String Quartet No.2. Proceeds are donated to the Peace movement.
Since their formation in Norway in 1984, the Vertavo Quartet has won numerous awards around the world. In June 2005, the quartet was honoured with the Grieg-Prize, while previosly recieving First Prize at the 2nd Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition – where they were also awarded the Audience prize and the Critics’ prize. Øyvor Volle (violin), Annabelle Meare (violin), Berit Cardas(viola) and Bjørg Lewis (cello) are often seen touring, both throughout Europe, the US and Japan.
