Dedication and aplomb

Solem Quartet

Inverurie Music, A. Massey

Inverurie Music staged the classical component on Saturday of the In Tune weekend gigs with the Solem Quartet in the Acorn Centre.

Forming in 2011 in Manchester University, they took its name from the University’s motto, “arduus ad solem”, meaning “striving towards the sun.” Despite the lack of sunshine, the quartet clearly enjoyed playing in the generous acoustics of the Acorn Centre and confidently and clearly described the pieces that they played.

The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the Beethoven Quartet no 12 in E flat major, which was played with dedication and aplomb. The changes of tempo and mood were skilfully handled, at times putting the audience on the edge of their seats.

Such confidence was soon transformed into delight and the Quartet were brought back twice to the stage to hear their appreciative and warm applause.
