When it came to choosing which artists we should invite to perform at our 50th Birthday concert, there was very little discussion. We all agreed that, following the two outstanding concerts they had given us in March 2009 and March 2011, the Atrium Quartet were top of the list. However, this time we have an added bonus - they are joined by rising French pianist Nicolas Stavy to give us two of the repertoires major Piano Quintets as well as a repeat of the surprisingly rarely played Walton Quartet with which they stunned us in 2009.
