This concert’s first half featured the melodious sounds of Schubert, as played by the Schubertians (Maria Becker, Sarah Snape, John Goodstadt, Rosy Hickman and Paul Hickman), as well as Antony Brannick on piano, who began with an expressive performance of four movements from Moments Musicaux (D780). Four of the Schubertians then played his String Quartet in C major (D 46), with its varying moods.
Paul Hickman joined for the second half, which consisted of Glazunov’s String Quintet in A major (Op 39). Two cellos instead of one helped to create the rich texture of this piece.
This concert demonstrated both skill and sensitivity.
