Over to the UK this week for a concert by The Fine Arts Quartet, live at The Chipping Camden Festival 2014, recorded on May 19th.

Although the personnel have changed over the years, The Fine Arts Quartet has become one of the longest-running String Quartets in the U.S. – and true to form, they offer a nicely varied program that I’ve split into two parts.

Here’s what on the players:

 

The Fine Arts Quartet plays quartets by Shostakovich, Debussy and Schubert.

Presented by Ian Skelly, live from St James’ Church in Chipping Campden.

1. (Top Player) Shostakovich: Quartet No 1 in C major, Op 49
Debussy: Quartet in G minor, Op 10

Interval

2. (Bottom Player) Schubert: Quartet in D minor “Death and the Maiden” D 819

 

It was recorded by the venerable BBC Radio 3 on May 19th.

Enjoy.
