The Chilingirian Quartet offers a celebration of the Nature theme through the string quartet medium.

Janáček’s haunting miniatures present a range of intimate thoughts and feelings through nature imagery, and Puccini’s beautiful Elegy, named after the famous funeral flower, was written in a single night in 1890 as a response to the death of his friend Amedeo, the Duke of Savoy.

These intimate pieces are framed by more ebullient ones from Haydn, a veritable poet of rural life: a quartet nicknamed the Frog for its comic bariolage effects and his popular, expansive Sunrise quartet from the Op. 76 set.
