Solem Quartet on tour with Concerts in the West

The Solem Quartet looks forward to a weekend tour of four performances for Concerts in the West in February 2022.

The programme for the tour will include a selection of short pieces, under the title “Sunrise”, from the Quartet’s recent Orchid Classics disc ‘The Four Quarters’. This set will be sandwiched between two of the Solems’ favourite larger-scale string quartets: Bartók’s Quartet no. 1 and Beethoven’s Quartet op. 131, which are both also part of the Quartet’s ongoing Beethoven Bartók Now project.

Bridport Arts Centre will host the first concert of the tour at 11:30am on Friday 4th February, before the Quartet travel on to Ilmister Arts Centre for an 8pm concert the same evening. Saturday 5th February sees the next concert at 7:30pm in The Dance House, Crewkerne, and the final concert takes place at St Laurence’s Church, Upwey, near Weymouth, Dorset, on Sunday 6th February at 3pm.

Tickets for all four concerts will go on sale in January and will be available via the Concerts in the West website.
