Praised for their stage presence, fiery vitality and musical empathy, the dynamic Leonkoro Quartet are really going places … and fast. Founded in Berlin in 2019, within just a couple of years they were snatching coveted awards from all the major competitions including First Prize at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition together with nine of the twelve special prizes – for performances of Haydn, Mozart and 20th century repertoire. So it will be a delight to hear them in Schubert’s G minor Quartet – a natural successor to those of Haydn and Mozart and penned during one of Schubert’s most prolific composing years, 1815.

Expect the Leonkoro Quartet to bring special insight, too, to Janáček’s soulful and jagged First Quartet, known as the ‘Kreutzer Sonata’. Janáček confided: “I was imagining a poor woman, tormented and run down” as in Tolstoy’s novella of the same name. The first of Beethoven’s three ‘Razumovsky’ Quartets predates the Schubert by nine years but seems light years ahead. It’s almost orchestral in parts, and the slow movement contains one of the most ravishing and heartfelt melodies in all of Beethoven’s chamber music.
