Czech Series: Dvorak Chamber Music for Strings

Dvorak’s Terzetto for two violins and viola and the quintet, scored for string quartet and double bass, are linked by their unusual instrumentation. The addition of double bass in the string quintet enriches the sonority and texture, providing a highly suitable palette for the Bohemian nationalism and plentiful melodic writing inherent in the music. This event is part of the Czech Series of concerts at The Royal Academy of Music.

Tansy Bennett, Susannah Peterson, Tessa Ho and Lauren Forder violin
Marie De Bry and Ricardo Gaspar viola
Gudný Jónasdóttir cello
Laurence Ungless double bass

Dvorak Terzetto op.74
Dvorak String Quintet no.2 in G, op.77
