The four outstanding young musicians of the Leonkoro Quartet have already acquired an astonishing list of international prizes to their name.
Last year’s awards included first prize at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, where they astonished both the jury and audience with their boundless energy and powerful musicality, and their appointment to the prestigious BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme.
For their Sheffield debut, they’ll be performing a programme that tackles the profound drama of Janáček and Beethoven, alongside the graceful lightness of a quartet composed by Schubert when he was still a teenager.
SCHUBERT String Quartet No.9 in G minor D173 (23’)
