We welcome back the Marmen Quartet, who last played here in 2018 and who have been building their already impressive reputation since. Tonight they perform this year two classic quartets by Haydn and Ravel and then join forces with the celebrated cellist from the Doric Quartet, John Myerscough, for a performance of Schubert’s sublime string quintet.
