The Frankland Quartet | Dvorak, Haydn, Meredith

June 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Music Department, Palace Green
Durham, DH1 3RL
+ Google Map
£1.00 – £10.00

Formed in 2017, the Frankland Quartet’s musical identity is embedded in the North East of England. Long-time colleagues in Royal Northern Sinfonia, the region’s professional chamber orchestra, all four of its members base their careers in the North East, and a deep commitment to the cultural life of the area lies at the heart of the Quartet’s work, inspired by its landscape, its history and communities. The Frankland Quartet’s music-making is dedicated to an equal marriage of past and present, and a desire to look beyond the standard repertoire, championing composers from outside the traditional canon, including female composers and underrepresented groups. They are also committed to the voices of the North East, and work regularly with the region’s leading composers.
