Primrose quartet

Inverurie Music’s successful concert season continues on Saturday 17th March at The Church Centre Kemnay when the Primrose Piano Quartet is in residence. At this intimate venue with a good acoustic you can get up close and personal with the Quartet and have a wonderful experience of some lovely music. The Quartet was founded in 2004 and is named after the great Scottish violist, William Primrose, who himself played in the Festival Piano Quartet. Award-winning recordings feature works by Dunhill, Hurlstone, Quilter, Bax, Scott, Alwyn, Howells and Frank Bridge. Peter Maxwell-Davies wrote his Piano Quartet for the Primrose in 2008; this was recorded in 2009 for the Meridian label. In a busy performing season the Primrose has completed an extensive tour of Denmark and visits to Germany, Bulgaria, and Romania. They premiered a new piano quartet written for the Primrose by leading British composer Anthony Payne at London’s Kings Place. Recent recordings include a new CD of Elgar, Payne and Bowen, with a CD of Brahms chamber works played on authentic pianos planned. Their own festival in the Hampshire Village of West Meon is now in its seventh year, and they were appointed ensemble-in- residence at the Battle Festival in 2016. This will be an evening to remember with these talented players of international repute. The programme includes works by Brahms, Elgar, Alwyn and Mozart.

The concert starts at 8pm and tickets; £12 adult, £9.00 concession and £1.00 child or student, are available at Rose Lane Music and Arts, Inverurie, tel 01467 624629 or at the door from 7.30p.m.
