MATTHEW LAING New Commission (world premiere)
ROBERT SCHUMANN
String Quartet No. 3 in A major, Op. 41, No. 3
JOSEPH HAYDN
String Quartet Op. 64, No. 3

Matthew Laing was the winner of the Scarlet’s Fund residency award as part of FQ’s 2017 Composer Development Program. Impressed by his unique and engaging concept of sound and gift of musical architecture, we asked Matthew to choose which works best pair with his compositional voice. He chose to have his work programmed with Schumann’s String Quartet No. 3 and Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 64 No. 3; shining a new perspective on these enduring works of the repertoire and using it to place his own work into a historical context.

Violins Thibaud Pavlovic-Hobba Nicholas Waters
Viola Helen Ireland
