INTERNATIONAL CONCERT SEASON 2017


"...Nothing short of phenomenal." The Telegraph, UK

Exhilarating, exuberant, virtuosic: the Pacifica Quartet has won hearts around the world for its passionate performances. Treading that miraculous line between naked emotion and scrupulous musicianship, a concert with the Pacificas becomes an engaging sensory experience. Such intensity throws a brilliant light onto quartets by Hadyn, Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Shostakovich, as well as the welcome return of Nigel Westlake’s second quartet.
