The Quintet

Wednesday 6 December 2023 - Friday 8 December 2023

An hour is not a long time, but in a short amount of time you can fit a lot of magic.

We believe Franz Schubert must have resonated with this sentiment. Join us as we explore the restless first movement of his String Quintet in C Major, his final piece of chamber music before he died a few weeks later at only 31. With an unconventional two cellos in this ensemble, prepare for rich, soaring music that leaves you with a sense that time is so precious.
