Free Event - Music
In the third of the 2022 Wandsworth Street Concerts, the Medea String Quartet perform Fanny Hensel’s String Quartet in E-flat major in a relaxed outdoor concert in St. Anne's Churchyard. Beforehand, we will hear her brother Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 1 (Op. 12) and a recent commission from Laura Marconi, Bakekujira.
The Medea String Quartet is a newly-formed chamber ensemble comprised of current students and graduates of the Royal College of Music. Long-term friends back in Italy, Clara Mezzanatto and Ada Guarneri, joined with English violist Joanna Patrick and violinist Mira Marton in 2020, under the aegis of Simon Rowland-Jones, and have since performed in a number of concerts in London private houses as well as RCM Chamber Essentials, Lunchtime Concerts and St. Mary Abbots concert series.
The concert is free so everyone can come, although donations are welcome. Invite your friends and bring a rug and a picnic! We look forward to welcoming you.
