Belcea Quartet

The New Town Concert Society fill a long-standing gap in their programme as the Belcea Quartet, now the leading British based quartet of their generation, make their first appearance as part of the 2013/14 season. They will come straight from the centenary Britten weekend at Aldeburgh to play Britten’s last string quartet, flanked by two of his favourite composers, Haydn and Mozart.

John Adams: City Noir
City Halls

Tickets: £11-£24
James Ehnes violin
Donald Runnicles conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

It's one of the most talked-about new scores of recent years. And there's absolutely nothing minimal about John Adams's City Noir, a sassy, bluesy symphony of Los Angeles, inspired by classic movies and scored for a Mahler-size orchestra. This is music that demands to be heard, and Donald Runnicles has set it alongside the dazzling rightness of Beethoven's headlong Fourth Symphony and the ominous twilight of Shostakovich's tormented First Violin Concerto, performed here by James Ehnes - whose "indelible, intellectually gripping" Shostakovich performances have left critics reeling. Three masterworks from three centuries, each speaking to the other - and, more importantly, to us: right here and right now.

Ludwig Van Beethoven : Symphony No.4
Dmitri Shostakovich : Violin Concerto No.1
