Villiers Quartet | Purcell, Britten and Saxton
February 15 @ 7:30 pm£5 – £25
The second concert of the Villiers residency at the JdP features works by three English composers. Purcell’s fantasias, heard here for string quartet, revisit the English viol consort genre established by John Blow and John Jenkins. They in turn form the inspiration for two 20th Centuray works by Britten and by his student, Robert Saxton.
Purcell Chaconne (arr. by Britten)
Robert Saxton Fantazia (1993)
Britten String Quartet No. 2 in C major op. 36
