Piano quartet play Melrose

A celebrated Scottish piano quartet will perform in Melrose Parish Church Hall tomorrow night (November 21).

The Primrose Quartet, who were formed by pianist John Thwaites and three of the UK’s most renowned chamber musicians – Susanne Stanzeleit, Robin Ireland and Andrew Fuller – is named after the great Scottish violist, William Primrose, who himself played in the Festival Piano Quartet.

The group were lauded by The Herald as displaying “sheer musicianship all the way from strong, confident players, and multiple delights for listeners”.

The Quartet has toured the UK and Denmark, and in 2009 commissioned Burns Air to celebrate Robert Burns’ 250th anniversary, for which a number of composers wrote variations on a Burns melody.

Concert begins at 7.30pm. Tickets at the door for non-members of Melrose Music Society, £12. Accompanied children free.
