Piatti Quartet Haydn Quartet in C Op.33 No.3 ‘The Bird’ Emily Howard Afference Simon Holt 4th Quartet: Cloud House (Aldeburgh Festival commission, world premiere) Beethoven String Quartet in F minor Op.95 ‘Serioso’ Wigmore Hall competition winner the Piatti Quartet has an inquisitive thirst for the new. Here, the explosive energy and ingenuity of music by the founding fathers of the string quartet Beethoven and Haydn are placed alongside two recent works. As so often for Emily Howard, science provides a springboard for her musical exploration. Simon Holt’s Aldeburgh Festival commission is inspired by the trinkets and artefacts left untouched for decades in an abandoned farmhouse, the ‘Cloud House’ of the title.
