Composer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson presents an introduction to Brodsky Quartet’s concert, which includes his own Quartet No.1.

‘The music of Beethoven, increasingly isolated by his deafness and Shostakovich, working under an oppressive totalitarian regime, tells us a lot about how they found strength to face both personal and political trials, and nowhere more so than in their string quartets.’ says Stephen.

‘My own quartet is a tribute to these giants, charting a journey through loss, but leading to something more hopeful and liberating.’
