Two of Britain’s finest award-winning string quartets, the Sacconi and Navarra, are joined at the Wigmore Hall by top British cellist, Guy Johnston in a programme of contrasts – the brilliant textures and vibrant colours of Bridge and Ravel and the titanic Classical quintet by Schubert.

The Navarra String Quartet is highly sought-after, with an international reputation, receiving awards such as the MIDEM Classique Young Artist Award and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. They have been described as “one of the most dynamic and poetic string quartets of today”.

Since their formation in 2001, the Sacconi Quartet have rooted a reputation for their seductive style. With their own record label and many critically acclaimed recordings, The Sacconi’s four founding members continue to demonstrate a shared passion for quartet repertoire, bringing a fresh and sparky feel to string playing and reaching out to new audiences worldwide.

Guy Johnston has fast become one of the UK’s finest soloists and chamber musicians. He is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music and patron of many youth charities and organisations. Guy has established himself as not only an inspiration on the cello but a figurehead of music-making in Britain.

All three cellos being performed on at this concert are on long-term loans to the cellists by the Royal Society of Musicians.
