Calidore Quartet
Richard Wigmore

The Calidore Quartet joins Richard Wigmore to get inside Mendelssohn’s string quartets and see what makes them tick. The relationship musicians have with the music they perform is so intense, born of hours and hours of painstaking learning and practice. It brings insights and thoughts that can be revelatory to any listener, opening their ears to the music in whole new ways. Here, the Calidore Quartet gives us its inside view of the Mendelssohn quartets.
