Michelangelo String Quartet

The Michelangelo Quartet begin their series featuring Beethoven’s Rasumovsky Quartets in the ideal chamber music acoustic of East Linton’s lovely old church. Each piece in this programme is a pinnacle of quartet writing, from the boundless imagination of late Haydn, through Dvorák’s warmly affectionate tribute to the New World, to the unprecedented dramatic range of the Beethoven.

“The Michelangelos are one of the great string quartets of the era.”

Prestonkirk Parish Church, East Linton

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.

Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.

The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
