About Edinburgh International Festival: Doric String Quartet

Stylish, dazzling, gloriously supple in its evocative playing, the Doric Quartet is one of today’s finest British quartets, and winner of several major international awards.

In this special recital, the four Doric players join forces with distinctive Australian-born composer Brett Dean, celebrated worldwide for his immensely lyrical, richly coloured music. Working alongside the composer, the Doric Quartet gives Dean’s String Quartet No. 3 "Hidden Agendas" its first European performance.

Equally renowned as a violist – and a player in the Berlin Philharmonic for 14 years – Dean himself joins the Doric players for the soaring melodies of Brahms’s powerful, orchestral-scale Second String Quintet to close. To begin, Haydn’s playful ‘Joke’ quartet keeps you guessing as to when it’s really finished.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Doric String Quartet are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
