£2 Students and benefit claimants - Doors & Bar from 7.30pm

As one of the oldest-established and best-known British string quartets the Fitzwilliam needs no introduction. Their last visit was in 2006 and we are delighted to welcome them back to Bollington again. Founded in 1968 by four Cambridge undergraduates, the Fitzwilliam Quartet was one of the first of a long line of quartets to have emerged under the guidance of Sidney Griller at the Royal Academy of Music. They became well known through their close personal association with Dmitri Shostakovich, who befriended them following a visit to York to hear them play. He entrusted them with the Western premières of his last three quartets, and before long they had become the first group to perform and record all fifteen.
