Four: Zero Autumn 2010
Following a successful debut earlier in 2010, the De La Warr Pavilion in association with Chimera Productions, is delighted to present Four:Zero; the second production of this original classical concert series which takes in the cornerstones of the solo, duo, trio and quartet repertoire.
For this season, the stellar line-up of world class performers and rising stars select their own programme from two broad themes; romanticism and folk influence. Imaginative and inspiring, each will feature a number of the most pivotal compositions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Glass: String Quartet No 2 ‘Company’
Webern: Langsamer Satz
