“Nice to see you” – William Marsey
String quartet in A minor, opus 13. – Mendelssohn
The Frankland String Quartet was formed In 2017 by four of the North East’s leading chamber musicians: Sophie Appleton (violin), Sarah Roberts (violin), James Slater (viola), Daniel Hammersley (‘cello). Their Beethoven concerts last year were widely acclaimed and they performed Haydn and Beethoven on BBC Radio 3 as part of the ‘free thinking’ festival in 2018. They were also wired up and had their heart beats and pulses monitored as part of an international study connected to Durham University’s ‘Interpersonal Entrainment in music performance’. The findings were presented on BBC Radio 3’s Music Matters. Amongst their concerts they performed at Sage Gateshead and played Howard Skempton as part of the COMA festival trail of contemporary works around Ouseburn. The quartet is ‘Quartet in Residence’ at Durham University where they have a wide ranging role including giving regular concerts, workshops and coaching.
