During the 2009-10 season, the Doric Quartet appeared at Wigmore Hall four times as a foursome and in recitals with Philip Langridge and Andrew Kennedy.
Future engagements include recitals in Berlin, Germany, and concerts in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.
The programme for Campus West includes Haydn’s String Quartet in A Major, Op 20 No 6, the String Quartet No 5 in E flat major, Op 44 No 3 by Mendelssohn and Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite.
