Consone String Quartet

Agata Daraškaite & Magdalena Loth-Hill violins
Elitsa Bogdanova viola, George Ross cello

with Alexander Rolton cello


Haydn   Quartet in D Op 71 No 2
Onslow   Quintet in C minor Op 38 ‘The Bullet’
Schubert   Quintet in C D956

The first period instrument group to become BBC New Generation Artists, the Consone’s first concert in Leamington in February 2020 included a quartet by Onslow. It made a big impression and there will be much interest in his quintet, written in 1829 and nicknamed ‘The Bullet’, before we hear Schubert’s sublime quintet, which dates from the previous year.

The Consone Quartet joined the BBC New Generation Artists in spring 2019. Formed at the Royal College of Music where the Quartet won the Century Fund Prize in 2013, two years later it won two prizes in the York Early Music Festival Competition. The Quartet brings period instrument interpretation in Classical and Early Romantic repertoire and of particular interest in this concert will be the work written in 1812 by George Onslow, son of an English father and French mother. He wrote three dozen quartets in all and this Quartet will delight our audience.
