Eastgate Theatre, Peebles

Resol String Quartet

Maria Vila Ariza & Annabel Kidd (violins), Raphael Chinn (viola), Alasdair Morton-Teng (cello)

Such was the impression made by the Resol Quartet on their first visit to Peebles (playing the reconstructed ‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’ in September 2022) that there were demands for an early return with a full recital programme. Happily, the wait has not been a long one and these outstanding young musicians are back with a programme of three works from three centuries.

From the late 19th century, we have one of Puccini’s rare departures from the world of opera; his short, dark-hued elegy ‘Crisantemi’ (Chrysanthemums). From 100 years earlier, we then hear Mozart’s ‘Dissonance’ Quartet, with the tense, disorientating, and for its time radical, slow opening from which it takes its nickname.

Finally, from the mid-20th century, comes a work that Shostakovich considered one of his finest, taking us from impish humour through all manner of unease, trauma and heart-rending grief to end in ‘a mysterious transformation into eternal light and conciliation’.


“The Resol Quartet is making an impact for the dedication and passion in its playing. What they are doing is marvellous” (ArtMag UK)
