String Quartet Op. 59 no. 1
String Quartet in D minor K421 »
String Quartet No. 1 »

This brilliant young quartet, members of the sensational Simón Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela, are products of the remarkable El Sistema music education system in their home country. They have played all over the world and studied under such distinguished musicians as the Borodin Quartet and the Berlin Philharmonic Quartet. MMC is delighted to present this un-missable opportunity (free to members) to hear these talented young people at first hand.

Sir Simon Rattle describes El Sistema: "nothing less than a miracle... From here, I see the future of music for the whole world. I see this programme not only as a question of art, but deep down as a social initiative. It has saved many lives, and will continue to save them."
