The Heath Quartet, winners of a Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artists award, launch this year’s Lunchtime Series with Mozart’s “Dissonance” Quartet, so-called because of the tangled harmonies in its slow introduction.
The popular guitarist Xuefei Yang returns, following her appearance in the 2019 Bath Bachfest, to perform a set of solo variations by Fernando Sor on a theme from Mozart’s Magic Flute. Then she joins forces with the Quartet in a virtuoso Concerto by Mauro Giuliani, first performed by the composer in Vienna in the early years of the 19th century.
