The Primrose Piano Quartet will be performing at the Cathedral Concert Society’s celebration of French music from the 19th and early 20th century later this month.

The group will also play a series of sonatas, trios and quartets including Cesar Frank’s classic violin sonata and works by Chausson, Francaix and Faure at the concert at Ripon Cathedral on Monday, January 12, at 7.30pm.

The Primrose, which was formed by pianist John Thwaites and three chamber musicians in 2004, takes its name from the Scottish violist William Primrose, who died in 1982.

Roger Higson, chairman of the concert society, said: “The Primrose Quartet brings together a group of top rate artists and should not be missed.”

The quartet builds its repertoire around distinct themes featuring works by 20th century English composers and also runs its own festival in the Hampshire village of West Meon.
