The Chilingirian Quartet is one of the world’s most celebrated and widely-travelled ensembles, renowned for its thrilling interpretations of the great quartets and commanding performances of contemporary repertoire. Described by The Times as “indispensable pillars of British musical life”, the Quartet is composed of Levon Chilingirian (violin), Stephen Orton (cello), Ronald Birks (violin), and Susie Mészáros (viola).
For this concert they are joined on stage by Guildhall professor and acclaimed violist Matthew Jones for Mozart’s melancholic ‘viola quintet’.
