The Allegri Quartet, in its 62nd year, is Britain's oldest chamber group. Founded in 1953 by Eli Goren and William Pleeth it has played a key role in the British musical scene, working with composers such as Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett, Elizabeth Maconchy, John Woolrich, Peter Fribbins, Anthony Payne, James MacMillan, Matthew Taylor and most recently Alec Roth, resulting in new commissions and recordings.
The Allegri Quartet joins us to workshop compositions by BA Music students on the Collaborative Composition and Performance module. Composers receive feedback on their works-in-progress, and experiment with alternative techniques and voicings, which are demonstrated by the quartet.
This event is open to students, staff and the public. Attendance is free and no registration is required.
