The Shapes of a Square in Pictures

Thank you for all who came along to our concert this past Friday (08.03.13).  It was great to have you with us, and we hope you enjoyed hearing the music as much as we enjoyed playing it for you!  The Navarra Quartet were brilliant guests and gave fantastic performances of all five works on the programme.

We were so pleased to have another international composer with us (Gustavo Penha, from Brazil).  Gustavo had the opportunity to work with the Navarra Quartet on his piece estudo sobre gravitacao during the rehearsals at LSO St. Luke’s.

We’ll be back soon with audio and video from the concert.  In the meantime, we hope you’ll check out our next concert – Songs and 7 Haiku – at The Warehouse, 7:30pm on Saturday 15th June!
