String Quartet at Southbank

  • The Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, London (map)

Thea Musgrave’s 1958 String Quartet opens a concert by the Chilingirian Quartet, which includes the European premiere of Kareem Roustom’s first venture into the medium.

The Musgrave quartet was commissioned by the University of Glasgow. A single theme, heard in the cello at the beginning, gives rise to the main material of the whole work. There are three movements of contrasting character, which explore the many possibilities inherent in this one idea. 

Thea Musgrave: String Quartet
Kareem Roustom: String Quartet (Shades of Night) (European premiere)
