Marmen Quartet

5 Feb 2019

Haydn String Quartet in B flat major Op. 50 No. 1
Debussy String Quartet in G minor Op. 10 

Founded in 2013, the Marmen Quartet is fresh from success in last year’s Royal Overseas League Competition. The ensemble’s artistry is perfectly encapsulated in two contrasting masterworks for the string quartet: the first of Haydn’s Op. 50 quartets, an essay in pared-down elegance; and Debussy’s only string quartet, an early work that anticipates the composer’s unique musical impressionism.
