Catch the energetic string quartet at a lunchtime concert in Aldeburgh, with music by Purcell, Britten and Imogen Holst.

Quatuor Mona was formed in Paris in 2018 by a group of young women from all over the world. Uniting Latvian, French, American and Korean backgrounds, they have created their own musical language.

Over recent years they have performed in many major European halls and festivals, including the Edinburgh International Festival, Quatuors à Bordeaux and the Pierre Boulez hall of the Philharmonie de Paris. In this concert, the quartet will perform the perfect programme for Aldeburgh's Jubilee Hall with their trademark energy and style.

Purcell arr.Britten:
Chacony in G Minor (7)
Imogen Holst:
Phantasy Quartet (11)
Britten:
String Quartet No.2 in C Major, Op.36 (31)
An energy never seen in the string quartet genre. The communication is so alive and so beautiful to watch

Every Friday from January to April we invite you to our historic Friday Lunchtime Concerts on the Suffolk Coast. Enjoy a warm respite from the winter winds and performances by brilliant young musicians from the UK and abroad. All ensembles in this year's series are Britten Pears Young Artists for 2022-23 and are on a Chamber Music Residency as part of the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme.

The Britten Pears Young Artist Programme is made possible with the generous support of our Trust & Foundations and Individual supporters.

We are grateful to the Barbara Whatmore Charitable Trust, the Nicholson family in memory of Patricia Nicholson, and The Radcliffe Trust for their support toward Chamber Music in Residence.
