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                Fantasias
Purcell                Chaconne (arr. by Britten)
Robert Saxton   Fantazia (1993)
Britten                String Quartet No. 2 in C major op. 36

Tickets: £25 gallery, £15 regular, £5 students
