String Quartet Op 26 No 20 in G minor
String Quartet D46 in C major
String Quartet Op 26 No 6 in F minor
String Quartet Op 44 No 2 in E minor


This multiple prize-winning young British quartet has been garnering enthusiastic reviews for their stylish period instrument performances of classical and early 19th-century music. Two unjustly neglected pieces by Haydn’s always inventive contemporary Boccherini and a delightful early quartet by Schubert set the stage for a masterpiece from Mendelssohn’s maturity. The E minor quartet combines his effortless classical sophistication with all the febrile, restless passion and raw drama of a true Romantic.

'Impeccable ... a group to watch.'

Lennoxlove House, Haddington

Dating back to the middle ages, Lennoxlove House reflects the myriad of family, political and social influences that have shaped Scottish history.

Owned originally by the Maitland family and later by the Blantyres, since 1946 it has been the seat of the Dukes of Hamilton who brought from Hamilton Palace an extensive inheritance of historic furnishings and art.

Mary Queen of Scots and Chopin are both reputed to have slept here. The barrel-vaulted Great Hall is in the oldest, 14th Century, part of the house.
