Bollington Chamber Concerts
Wolf Italian Serenade
Mozart Quartet No. 16 in Eb K428
Korngold Quartet No. 2 Op. 26
The first visit to Bollington by this highly-praised young quartet, formed at the RNCM in 2010. Mozart’s quartet is one of a set of six which so impressed their dedicatee, Joseph Haydn. Czech born composer Korngold lived and worked in Vienna, but established a reputation as a Hollywood film composer. In 1938 he was there writing the music for Robin Hood when news came of the Anschluss: a Jew, he remained in the USA. Recently his concert music has become more widely performed and it will be fascinating to hear his quartet.
