Coming Next: The Dulcinea String Quartet

We are looking forward to String Quartet playing at its finest from The Dulcinea String Quartet at our next concert on 11 November. Find out more about the next musical voyage of discovery from Bath Recitals.

The Dulcinea bring us string quartet playing at its finest from the classical elegance of Haydn and Schubert though the romanticism of Mendelssohn and to the music of the popular American composer Samuel Barber.

The Quartet recently returned from a successful third tour of Japan featuring a new commission for String Quartet and Shamisen visiting Tokyo, Aomori, Ibaraki, Hikone and Yokohama.

This video tells the story of their 2015 Japan tour and gives a great insight into their dynamic musicality:
