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 Haydn’s String Quartet in E flat major ‘The Joke’ Op 33 No 2 and Elgar’s String Quartet in E minor Op 83. 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.
