One of America’s most exciting young ensembles, the Eschers are artist members of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. BBC Music Magazine, reviewing their recent recording of the complete Mendelssohn Quartets, noted their “...eloquent, full-blooded playing...a beautiful blend of individuality and accord.” Their Hampstead programme features some lesser-performed but outstanding masterworks, including the original version of Samuel Barber's hauntingly beautiful “Adagio for Strings”.

SAMUEL BARBER    Quartet, Op 11 (including "Adagio for Strings")
GRIEG                        Quartet in G minor, Op 27
