Aroha String Quartet - 'Light and Dark'


In 'Light and Dark' we take you on an emotional journey, exploring a wide range of moods and soundscapes. Our programme begins with the warmth and brightness of Haydn’s “Emperor” Quartet Op 76 No 3, with its famous variations on an anthem he wrote for Kaiser Franz II. It then enters the pulsating world of Ross Carey’s evocative Toccatina (Elegy). The dark, sardonic mood of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 11, Op. 122, a profound work in seven short movements, is swept away by our final work: Dvorak’s gorgeous, much-loved “American” Quartet, Op. 96. Come along to immerse yourselves in this wonderful music! This concert is part of the Cambridge Autumn Festival.
