Arcadia String Quartet


HAYDN String Quartet in G, Op. 33, No. 5

BARTOK String Quartet, No. 3

BEETHOVEN String Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2  Rasumovsky


Winners of the 2014 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition, the 2012 Wigmore Hall London International String Quartet Competition, the 2011 Almere International Chamber Music Competition and the International Chamber Music Competition Hamburg in 2009, the Arcadia Quartet is rapidly establishing itself as one of the most exciting string quartets of their generation. Formed in 2006 under the close supervision of Nicusor Silaghi (member of the Transilvan Quartet), while students at the Gheorghe Dima Music Academy in Romania, the quartet has developed rapidly, guided by members of the Belcea Quartet, the Artis Quartet and the Alban Berg Quartet. They have performed across the world including performances at the Budapest Spring Festival, George Enescu International Festival, Cité International des Arts in Paris, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Pollack Hall in Montreal, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall, in Poland, Tel Aviv and Beijing, and throughout the UK.

Their Scottish tour in 2013 made such an impression that they were invited again in the 2015/16 season for a 14 concert tour in Scotland. The quartet play Bartok superbly and will record his complete quartets for Chandos in 2017.

"The playing has such intensity... the music is an assault on the senses, piercing the heart of this unsettling music" - The Financial Times

What a joy has been the first half of the season and there is more great music to come.   There is already a lot of interest in Jess Gillam after her appearance in the Last Night of the Proms, so we look forward to needing more seats out for that concert.

Your season ticket also gives you access to concerts in Lanark and Peebles for half price - well worth the money.  A particular welcome to those who have joined for the first time, our numbers have risen well this year.

After Christmas, 17th January sees the Navarra String Quartet, Sunday afternoon, 10th February, is the saxophonist Jess Gillam, with pianist Zeynep OzsucaSarah Beth Briggs returns on 8th March with her wonderful piano mastery and we end the season on 25th March with the A4 Brass Quartet, winners of the Tunnell prize.

Subscription income from members is vital to the welfare of the Biggar Music Club, for without it, it would be difficult to make the necessary planning decisions and contract commitments for each season which usually have to be made a whole year in advance.

At present, the membership fee of £65 provides free entry to all the concerts for the whole season, only just over £8 per concert, even less than last year. This is amazingly good value when compared to what you would have to pay to enjoy live performances by the same artists or ensembles in Edinburgh or Glasgow (or even London's Wigmore Hall) and without the cost and inconvenience of having to get there...
