‘After this, what is left for us to write?’ Schubert asked upon hearing Beethoven’s String Quartet in C sharp minor, Op. 131. This towering masterpiece sits alongside Ainsi la nuit – the only quartet ever written by Henri Dutilleux – which explores the poetic, spiritual and cosmic ideas of night.

Includes Devonshire tea served prior to the performance from 10.00am.
