Consone Quartet

Bryars, Strauss and Mozart

String Sextets

Francesca Gilbert (Viola) & Alexander Rolton (Cello)
Bryars, Strauss and Mozart

The addition of two players to the Consone Quartet’s line-up allows the opportunity to luxuriate in the warm sound of string sextets from the classical period to the present day. Gavin Bryars’s lyrical sextet refers to a well-known and fiendish historic mathematical puzzle; in the words of the composer, “my problem (was) how to manage the integration of two players into the string quartet unit, in as many ways as possible, step by step and with maximum diplomacy…”. Strauss’s unique string sextet opening to an opera is a gloriously seductive movement and is followed by an enchanting arrangement of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.
