Ruisi Quartet
(String Quartet)

Haydn - Quartet no. 44 in E major, op 54 no. 3, H III:59
Fischer - String Quartet no. 3 'Mad Piper'
Britten - Three Divertimenti
Debussy - String Quartet in G minor, op 10

Founded in 2012, the Ruisi String Quartet quickly established a reputation as one of the leading British quartets of its generation after winning the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for young British string players. Recent highlights include performances at the Wigmore Hall and a live broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Last season saw the quartet embark upon a complete cycle of Haydn Quartets at St Mary-at-Hill, London.

These young artist present a concert with a number of firsts, starting with a Haydn quartet never before performed at the ICC. Another first follows - a quartet by the former first violin of the Skampa quartet, based on Moravian folklore and melodies. Britten's Three Divertimenti were intended to be a part of a suite of character portraits of school friends , called Go play, boy, play - each movement melodically strong and enjoyably fresh. Finally a revolutionary first which is no stranger to Ilkley - Debussy's string quartet provides a sensual and sensational ending to the concert.

"This performance was a revelation. Joy and anguish, tenderness and high spirits, they were all there ..." STRINGSATTACHEDMUSIC.ORG.UK
