What is the course about?

Jonathan Trout leads another Group Quartet course, designed for those who are reluctant to tackle the string quartet repertoire one-to-a-part or who just enjoy playing the repertoire en masse. We’d like you to be of at least Grade 6 standard for this course, though we require no formal qualifications. We’ll work with Jonathan’s usual thoroughness on Samuel Barber’s String Quartet and Haydn’s Opus 74 No 2. Please note that you need to bring your own music – any decent edition will do – and we’d like you to number the bars yourself before you arrive. Start with the first complete bar and ignore “first time only” repeat bars in your calculations.

What will we accomplish?

By the end of this course you will be able to perform all or most of the movements of both works.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Upper Intermediate, Advanced

Enthusiasm is key and a willingness to bravely explore! 

How will the course be taught, and will any preparation be required?

You should arrive with your part prepared to the best of your ability.

Will music be provided in advance of the course?

Please note that you need to bring your own music – any decent edition will do – and we’d like you to number the bars yourself before you arrive. Start with the first complete bar and ignore “first time only” repeat bars in your calculations.

Is there anything I need to bring?

Yourself, your instrument and the music!
