Zelkova Quartet

Carole Nash Recital Room, RNCM

14 January 2014

Zelkova Quartet

Composed and confident in demeanor, setting their own pace throughout.

Intricate playing of (to list them) Bridge’s Three Idylls and string quartets by Britten and Haydn.  Britten’s filigree melodies (it was the String Quartet No. 2 in C major) the highlight.  All deftly brought into being, delicate statues against the sky.

An amiable manner, at the start and before each movement.  Visible enjoyment of the music.

Vital realisation.  All over.  Triumph.
