BMS 2021 Concert: Frankland Quartet

October 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Frankland Quartet return to Berwick!

The Berwick Music Series combines live concerts by nationally and internationally known performers, and educational events for those who would like to know more about classical and modern music. There is a Northern flavour to this year’s Series: there are North Eastern composers featured in our concerts, one of our lectures is on composers from the North East; and we have a composition competition on the theme “North”.

Berwick Music Series welcomes back the Frankland Quartet, remembered for their stunning performance of the Ravel quartet here in 2019. Formed in 2017, the Frankland Quartet’s musical identity is embedded in the North East of England. Long-time colleagues in Royal Northern Sinfonia, the region’s professional chamber orchestra, all four of its members share a deep commitment to the cultural life of the area, inspired by its landscape, its history and communities. The Frankland Quartet’s music-making is dedicated to an equal marriage of past and present, and a desire to look beyond the standard repertoire, championing composers from outside the traditional canon, including female composers and underrepresented groups. They are also committed to the voices of the North East, and work regularly with the region’s leading composers. In 2019 The Frankland Quartet became Quartet-in-Residence at Durham University, leading workshops and coaching for the university’s student ensembles, performing student compositions, and giving recitals, most recently of Ravel, Tippett and Medekšaite in April 2021.
