The club is welcoming the Piatti String Quartet for the opening concert of the new year on Saturday, January 30.

Prizewinners in the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet competition, the Piatti Quartet is now established as one of the leading ensembles in Europe.

The quartet has also appeared in Italy, Australia, Spain, Austria, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey and Holland, with national broadcasts on ABC (Australia) and RTE (Ireland) radio.

Their concert at Leighton’s Library Theatre includes three great masterpieces of the repertoire, quartets by Mozart – the Prussian Quartet K 589 – Ravel and Dvorak – his Quartet in G, Op.106, one of his most glorious late works.
