We are thrilled to be back with our beloved AFCM once again and tonight we make the important introductions to our crack team of AFCM musicians! The Goldner String Quartet's AFCM swansong begins with the gorgeous Schumann String Quartet Op.41 No.3. Introducing our three pianists we will hear some Percy Grainger, harking back to the old (or some would say odd) country with an old English Folk Song for three pianists. Gearchange into Hellfire by Mark Holdsworth, which is sure to make our resident winds count for dear life! We finish with an incredible arrangement of Ravel’s String Quartet for all the festival strings making that beautiful work come to life on a symphonic scale.
