The Armida Quarter, darling of BBC young artists and due to perform at the Wigmore Hall, they will also play at the BBC PROMS on 29 August 2016 at the Cadogan Hall. The new album contains Beethoven Op. 59 No 1 and Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 10, two very difficult pieces. “Opus 59 is extremely challenging”, remarks Martin Funda, the leader of the Armida Quartet. “One needs time to grasp these pieces. As performers, we are surprised again and again to note how quickly Beethoven star ts leading us into unfamiliar waters. The F Major Quartet is an ‘extrovert’ piece; at the same time, it contains a series of incredibly profound moments and a variety of different moods which we have to learn to interpret.” … Also available: Bartók, String Quartet No.4, Ligeti, String Quartet No.1, Kurtág, String Quartet Nr. 1 (AVI8553298) Mozart, String Quartets in A major K.169; in A major K. 464; in B-flat major K. 589 (AVI8553318)
