Join the internationally renowned Brodsky Quartet in their 46th year as they chart a personal and highly emotive journey through the final works of the finest composers for string quartet.

The Quartet formed in 1972 and have performed over 3,000 concerts across the world and released over 60 recordings. Living masters of string quartet repertoire, they last performed in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse alongside Jacqui Dankworth in October 2014. Through prayer, love, memory, and loss, each of the four interconnected concerts explores a different side of mortality.
