The Brentano Quartet bring a programme of great contrast to the East Neuk Festival in Fife. Mendelssohn's youthful and sunny first quartet written when he was barely out of his teenage years is paired with Britten's third and final quartet, a work of incredible contrasts and colours considered to be one of his finest masterpieces. Its final movement entitled 'La Serenissima' quotes directly from his opera 'Death in Venice'. It was written while the composer was in Venice and is a meditation on mortality.

Britten: String Quartet No.3

Mendelssohn: String Quartet No.1 in E flat, Op.12

Brentano Quartet.

Festival favourite Maximilian Martin performs Mozart's glorious Clarinet Quintet with the exciting young Calidore Quartet at this year's East Neuk Festival. The programme also includes a meditative work by Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov written for clarinet, quartet and voice. The composer describes the inspiration for Tenebrae:

I wrote Tenebrae as a consequence of witnessing two contrasting realities in a short period of time in September 2000. I was in Israel at the start of the new wave of violence that is still continuing today, and a week later I took my son to the new planetarium in New York, where we could see the Earth as a beautiful blue dot in space. I wanted to write a piece that could be listened to from different perspectives. That is, if one chooses to listen to it "from afar", the music would probably offer a "beautiful" surface but, from a metaphorically closer distance, one could hear that, beneath that surface, the music is full of pain."

Schubert: Quartettsatz in C minor, D703

Osvaldo Golijov: Tenebrae

Mozart: Clarinet Quintet in A, K581
