The Brompton Quartet, known for their standout performances and BBC Radio 3 appearances, are set to perform at the Bridges Centre in Monmouth. The concert, hosted by Wye Valley Music, will take place at 3 pm on Sunday, November 12th and is expected to be a musical feast featuring compositions by Haydn, Beethoven, and contemporary American composer Jesse Montgomery.

Comprising Maja Horvat on violin, Mee-Hyuan Esther Park on violin, Wallis Power on cello, and Edward Keenan on viola, the quartet has steadily gained recognition in the classical music scene. They recently served as this year’s Quartet-in-Residence at the Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival and have been awarded first prize in St Martin-in-the-Fields’ 2019 Chamber Music Competition.

The quartet’s programme for the upcoming concert promises an engaging blend of classical and contemporary works. Notably, the performance will include a piece by Jesse Montgomery, an acclaimed composer whose music has been described by The Washington Post as “turbulent, wildly colourful and exploding with life.” Jesse said of her composition “Strum,” “Drawing on American folk idioms and the spirit of dance and movement, the piece has a kind of narrative that begins with fleeting nostalgia and transforms into ecstatic celebration.”

The full programme for the concert will feature: Josef Haydn, Jessie Montgomery, and Ludwig van Beethoven.
