Now well into its fifth decade, the Fitzwilliam String Quartet is amongst the longest established string quartets in the world.
The current line-up combines founding member violoist Alan George with a new generation of performers: violinists Lucy Russell and Marcus Barcham Stevens, and cellist Sally Pendlebury.
International recognition came early for FSQ, as the first group to record and perform all fifteen of Shostakovich’s string quartets, drawing on the players’ personal connection with the composer.
Today, the FSQ performs a wide and diverse range of music from the late 17th century to the present day. It remains one of the few quartets to play on both historical and modern instrument set-ups and has brought over 50 new works to the repertoire.
The FSQ has performed regularly across Britain, Europe, North America, the Middle and Far East, and Southern Africa, as well as making many award winning recordings for Decca, Linn, and Divine Art Records.
An illustrated guide to Opus 130 will be presented by The Fitzwilliam String Quartet at The Swallow Theatre on Saturday 8 July at 10.30am (admission £5).
