This splendid Piano Quartet, formed by pianist Simon Lane, is made up of four highly successful musicians, with a strong and shared passion for chamber music. Cellist Nathaniel Boyd and pianist Simon Lane have played for us before in different groups, Simon in a duo with cellist, Philip Higham, and Nathaniel as a former member of the Navarra Quartet. Their concert for us will be part of the North East Sound Festival which takes place each year in November. Their programme will include a short work by contemporary composer Martin Butler, but also Beethoven’s early piano quartet op. 16 (his own transcription of the quintet for piano and wind) and two more well-loved piano quartets, that by Schumann, and Faure’s C minor piano quartet.
