MUSIC TO YOUR EARS

 

As part of the Hull Academy International Concert Series, the University of Lincoln’s EICH Gallery will host a lunchtime performance by the German Vogler Quartet next Monday (18th April).

 

The Vogler Quartet has established itself as one of the finest of their generation, mastering a repertoire of over 200 works from all periods of music.

 

Founded in East Berlin in January 1985 the celebrated quartet is celebrating its 20th anniversary with its original members still together: Tim Vogler (violin), Frank Reinecke (violin), Stefan Fehlandt (viola) and Stephan Forck (violoncello).

 

For the lunchtime recital the quartet will be accompanied by internationally renowned violist Graham Oppenheimer as they perform Mozart’s famous String Quintet in D Major K593, one of his most beautiful, warm and approachable works.

 

“The Vogler Quartet and Graham Oppenheimer both have outstanding reputations,” said Rebecca Platt, marketing officer for the university in Hull. “To hear them playing together will be a real treat.

 

“We are very privileged to host a performance of this calibre.”

 

This performance takes place, free of charge, at the University of Lincoln’s EICH Gallery in the Derek Crothall Building on George Street, commencing at 1.00pm on Monday 18th April. 

 

Places are limited so it is advisable to book in advance by contacting Rebecca Platt on 01482 311702 or by emailing rplatt@lincoln.ac.uk.
