Brahms, Martinů & Dvořák | Artists’ Choice

18th January 2022 - 18th January 2022

Jonian-Ilias Kadesha – violin Sini Simonen – violin Charlotte Bonneton – viola David Adams – viola Vashti Hunter – cello David Waterman – cello Brahms - String Sextet No 2 Martinů - Duo for Violin and Cello Dvořák - String Sextet I adore both the sextets we are playing this evening, but I have always been particularly enchanted by Brahms’ second sextet in G Major. The mystery of the opening with the undulating semitones in the viola and tonal ambiguity creates a special intimate atmosphere which immediately draws the listener in. Although written in G major, I can’t help but notice an underlying sadness in the music. It is such a privilege to have the chance to play this piece in Leeds with such wonderful musicians and friends – I can’t wait to share it with the audience there! _– Vashti Hunter_ This concert is one of six in the Leeds International Chamber Season 2021/22.  Booking dates: 24 August: For existing subscribers (2019/20 From Dawn to Dusk subscribers) renewing their seats 2 September: For new subscribers and general booking opens
