The Odeion String Quartet with pianist Malcolm Nay and guitarist Jonathan Crossley with works by Brahms, Boccherini and Castelnuovo-Tedesco on August 20
The Odeion String Quartet was established at the University of the Free State (UFS) in 1991 as permanent full-time resident string quartet. At present it is the only resident string quartet at a South African university.
The newly constituted quartet has performed to critical acclaim in Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Knysna, George, Port Elizabeth, Grahamstown, Bulawayo and Harare and the members are: Denise Sutton (violin), Sharon de Kock (violin), Jeanne-Louise Moolman (viola) and Anmari van der Westhuizen (cello).
The renowned South African pianist Malcolm Nay joins the Odeion Quartet in a performance of the Brahms Piano Quintet and guitarist Jonathan Crossley will don his classical hat to team up with the Quartet for a performance of Luigi Boccherini Fandango (Quintet No. 4 for guitar and strings). As an added bonus, Jonathan and Malcolm will perform a rarity – a work for guitar and piano by the Italian composer Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
