Aleksandr Mosolov String Quartet No. 1 in A minor
Boris Tishchenko String Quartet No. 1
The unflinching modernism of Aleksandr Mosolov’s first string quartet (1926) meant
that it was never performed within his lifetime. The first quartet of Boris Tishchenko was written as he graduated from the composition class of Galina Ustvolskaya in 1957.
Followed at 2.30pm by
Seminar: Prof. Barry Cooper tells us the fascinating story of the genesis of
Beethoven’s Op. 131 String Quartet.
