The folk music of Eastern Europe has a flavour all of its own. Think flying fiddles, warm summer nights and the tang of paprika and woodsmoke. Both Kodaly and Dvorak had it in their blood, and you can feel the passion – and the rhythm – in every note of these two enchanting, rarely-heard string quartets. The Coull Quartet adore this music. Together with the unbuckled ardour and tender romantic poetry of Schumann’s lovely second quartet, it’ll make for a wonderfully high-spirited finish to their musical adventures in Warwick this season.
Kodaly Quartet No 2 Op.10
Schumann Quartet No 2 in F
Dvorak Quartet in E flat Op.51
For four decades here at the University of Warwick, the Coull Quartet has invited you to join them on that journey. This season their concerts will take you to Brazil, Hungary, France, and Soviet Russia; they’ll laugh, cry, and fall in love. There’s no emotion that can’t be expressed by a string quartet – and no string quartet commits to this music more deeply than the Coulls.
