Benslow Music: Fitzwilliam String Quartet with Elizabeth Bradley (double bass) and Yoko Misumi (piano) *PLUS LIVESTREAM*

Benslow Music Trust, Benslow Ln, Hitchin SG4 9RB
The Fitzwilliam is now one of the longest established string quartets in the world: founded in 1968 by four Cambridge undergraduates, the group quickly achieved international recognition as a result of its members’ personal friendship with Dmitri Shostakovich and their subsequent championing of his string quartets following his death. He entrusted them with the Western premières of the last three, and before long they had become the first ever group to perform and record all fifteen. These discs, which gained many international awards, secured for them a worldwide concert schedule and a long term recording contract with Decca.

Schubert (ed Newbould): String Trio D471

Shostakovich: Impromptu for viola and piano Op 33

Mozart: Piano Quartet in E flat major

Schubert: Piano Quintet in A major D667 "Trout"
