Alwinton Summer Concerts 2019: Marmen Quartet
May 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£16
The first in the series of Alwinton Summer Concerts 2019 will feature the Marmen Quartet, an award-winning string quartet performing two major works from their classical repertoire, composed by György Ligeti, a Hungarian composer with a unique voice and a fascination for the music of compatriot, Béla Bartók. With wonderful musical storytelling, the Marmen Quartet will engage with the audience in a mesmerising manner, introducing many, for the first time, to Ligeti’s fascinating work as a member of the avant-garde movement in Western Europe, which became his home after 1956.
Tickets cost £16, with reduced-price tickets for restricted views in the wonderfully atmospheric Church of St Michael and All Angels available for £13. If you wish to enjoy all four concerts (May 12, May 25, June 15 and July 6), a season ticket will cost £55/£46 but must be bought on 01669 640382 or 07717 415330.
