A concert of chamber music

A concert of chamber music including works by the Czech composer Gideon Klein, who was persecuted by the Nazis and deported to the Terezín concentration camp during World War II, alongside Mozart’s String Quartet in D Minor (the manuscript for which is held by the British Library) and String Quartet no. 3 by Pavel Fischer.

The Cassia String Quartet was born out of a passion for the string quartet repertoire. Recipients of the 2013 Musiciens Entre Guerre et Paix Award from the International Académie Ravel, they were finalists in the Trinity Laban Intercollegiate Competition and winners of the 2013 Nossek String Quartet Prize. They are now an associate quartet of Birmingham Conservatoire. Collaborations include commissioning and premiering a quartet by the composer Aaron Parker and performing alongside the clarinettist Nicholas Cox, pianist Sally Halsey and the Ely Sinfonia. The quartet have also enjoyed working alongside several bands, most notably New Order, The Charlatans, and Daughter. 

This event forms part of the conference The Future of the Archive, presented by the AHRC research project Performing the Jewish Archive (Leeds University).

 In partnership with AHRC and Leeds University
