We are delighted to welcome back the EUSEBIUS QUARTET with ALASDAIR BEATSON. They have worked together on a number of occasions and have recently made a recording of Korngold’s chamber music.
The quartet has toured throughout Europe alongside more recent performances closer to home including appearances at Kings Place, Conway Hall and Glyndebourne. In 2018 they were finalists in the Royal
Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition, and continue to perform live on BBC Radio 3. They are regular guests at numerous chamber music festivals including the Lewes Chamber Music Festival, of which first violinist Beatrice Philips is the Artistic Director and founder. The quartet were awarded a residency at Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme at Snape Maltings in 2019.
ALASDAIR BEATSON is a patron of Concerts in the West and has performed for us on a number of occasions. He has given solo performances and with other musicians, notably with Andrew Marriner and Michael Petrov in January 2020.
