Alasdair Tait presenter
The program of this event will be published later in the season. Each ensemble will perform a work from their core repertoire and a Dutch work.
This Sunday afternoon is devoted to young talent, featuring four young quartets all at different stages of their careers. Two of them have just won an international competition, while two are still studying at Dutch conservatories. This is a showcase event with a personal flavour: who are these young quartets and why do they play quartet? Each ensemble will perform a work from their core repertoire and a Dutch work.
Alasdair Tait, former cellist of the Belcea Quartet, sits on many jury panels and is also director of YCAT – an organisation devoted to the development of young classical talent. He has in-depth insight into the challenges facing young string quartets and reveals their world to you in the course of this afternoon.
