As part of the 2016 Roman River Music Festival, the dynamic young Sacconi Quartet, resident throughout Colchester Week, give an intimate and intense performance of this dramatic late-Beethoven String Quartet from memory in the dark and half-light of the recently-refurbished Mercury Studio. Preceded by Graham Fitkin’s intriguing String Quartet, which the composer himself describes as ‘unusual’.
