Described as being ‘simply world-class’ by Opera Magazine, the NCO has established a reputation as one of the leading chamber orchestras in the country. A feature in every NCO season is the regular appearance of the principal players as the NCO Soloists. In this concert, Nicholas Ward, the orchestra’s Artistic Director, presents a performance of great contrast and variety. The concert opens with Shostakovich’s 7th string quartet, which is the shortest and perhaps the most heartfelt and saddest music of his entire output, and ends with the driving energy of Debussy’s remarkable String Quartet. Sandwiched in between these two complete works is the scherzo from Schubert’s mighty G major quartet.
