For the Halcyon Quartet’s début performance at Conway Hall, they offer a rare opportunity to hear the third quartet by Polish composer Grażyna Bacewicz, dating from 1947, when the composer was living in Paris and enjoying life as a renowned violinist. Bacewicz’s quartet is flanked by two ‘greats’ of the quartet repertoire: Haydn, the ‘father of the string quartet’, and Schubert, whose Rosamunde quartet is thus called as it draws material from his entr’acte for the play Rosamunde, composed just a year earlier.
