SACCONI QUARTET AND JAMES GILCHRIST

Arvo Pärt Summa | Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 in C minor | Jonathan Dove In Damascus

The Sacconi Quartet is recognised internationally for its compelling ensemble work. Here they show how artists can create luminous work even under oppression: Shostakovich and Pärt both found themselves in conflict with Soviet authorities. They are joined by well-loved tenor James Gilchrist for In Damascus, setting a first-hand account of life in the war-torn city: “an unforgettable example of the power of art to convey something terrible through an expression that is paradoxically in itself beautiful.” (The Guardian)
