Alongside the evening concerts, the Villiers Quartet will be performing two informal lunchtime concerts at the historic Holywell Music Room. 
For the lunchtime series, they combine well-known works by the Finnish Sibelius, and the Russians Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, with works by contemporary student composers. An interesting comparison of how composers from different eras and different nations approach the complex task of writing for the string quartet.
