Llanfyllin Music Festival,  St Myllins Church
The 2019 LLanfyllin Music festival programme is an intriguing mix; mostly familiar names but not necessarily associated with the standard string quartet repertoire. The Festival programme is as follows: Saturday 27 July Haydn String quartet No. 42 in C, Op. 54 No. 2 Mendelssohn Four pieces for string quartet, Op. 81 Beethoven String quartet No.14 in C sharp minor, Op. 131 Sunday 28 July Haydn String quartet in D, Op. 71 No. 2 Szymanowski String quartet No. 1 in C, Op. 37 Tchaikovsky String Quartet No. 3 in E flat minor, Op. 30 Friday 2 August Sibelius String quartet “Voces Intimae”, Op. 56 Gershwin Lullaby for string quartet Beethoven String quartet No. 8 in E minor, Op. 59 No. 2 (2nd Razumovsky) Sunday 4 August (With guest musicians from the South Bank Sinfonia) Mozart String quartet No.17 in B flat, K. 458 “Hunt” Spohr Double quartet No.4 in G minor, Op. 136 Mendelssohn Octet in E flat, Op. 20 Louis Spohr, whose double quartet features in the last concert, may not be a household name. Spohr (1784 – 1859) was a German composer, violinist and conductor very much admired in his day but sadly neglected until a revival of interest in the late 20th century. His prolific output includes violin concertos, operas, symphonies, string quartets and four double quartets. He also invented the violin chin rest. 20th century music this year is represented by George Gershwin and Karol Szymanowski (1882 – 1937), generally regarded as one of the greatest Polish composers; his first string quartet features in concert 2. Sibelius too just creeps into the 20th century – his “Voces Intimae”, to be played in concert 3, was composed in 1909.
