Piatti String Quartet

As part of our initiative to explore The Ties between Pupil & Teacher in this series of concerts, Luton Music has received a most generous anonymous donation. This money is to help support projects in which we celebrate in particular the talent of young performers. For this concert we therefore invited the Piatti Quartet to mentor four of their talented students to join them on the platform for a performance of Mendelssohn’s dazzling Octet. Their guests will be the Asaka Quartet, currently Chamber Music Fellows at London’s Royal Academy of Music. (It’s also perhaps worth remembering that Felix Mendelssohn wrote this astonishing work when he was only 16, an age not so dissimilar to these remarkable young players!)
