Gildas at the Clapham Omnibus Theatre

  • Clapham Omnibus Theatre 1 Clapham Common North Side London, England, SW4 0QW United Kingdom (map)

Thomas Adès – The Four Quarters
Britten Quartet No. 3
Janacek Quartet No. 1 "Kreutzer" in motion


The programme features two of our favourite works for quartet by Britten and Ades, linking in with Omnibus's ‘96 festival’. The Janacek which follows is full of themes of jealousy, love and deception. We play it standing and from memory in a performance which allows us to get closer to the drama of the work and show the interaction of the four distinct, and sometimes violently juxtaposed, voices of the quartet.
