Adrian Hattrell's review of the final concert of the season
Sublime Strings

Tickhill Music Society was treated to a memorable evening by the Marmen Quartet at the final concert of the Society’s 2017/18 season. The music matched a beautiful Spring evening, with birdsong occasionally heard from inside the hall, and appropriately the first piece in the programme was Mozart’s “Spring” Quartet. This early example of the genre was an ideal start to the evening, with its contrasting lively and lyrical passages, and the young musicians were a perfect match for the young Mozart.

The programme then leapt forward 150 years to Janacek’s “Kreutzer Sonata”, inspired by Tolstoy’s murder mystery of the same name. The contrasting lyricism and dissonance of the music put the audience in mind of a film score, suitable for Tolstoy’s gruesome tale, and the Marmen Quartet played with great skill and insight.

A performance of Beethoven’s mighty opus 132 was the highlight of the concert. It occupied the whole of the second half, and was played with great affection and understanding. The extended slow movement was a thing of beauty which deserved a round of applause of its own. That applause was duly reserved to the end of the evening, and the audience departed treasuring the memory of an outstanding performance.

This was something really quite special. Read Adrian Hattrell's review and you will realise just what you missed!

STELLAR PLAYING

Every now and again concert-goers will hear music that will rock them back on their heels. This was exactly the experience of Tickhill Music Society at the recent performance by Kosmos. The line-up gave a clue that something special was coming – violin, viola and accordion. All three were classically trained but had travelled extensively, collecting music along the way – Greece, Ukraine, Serbia, Scotland and Japan, along with gypsy fiddling and sultry tango.

The trio displayed dazzling fingerwork and an uncanny rapport which left the audience breathless. Along the way there were arrangements of folk songs by Brahms, Dvorak and Sarasate. At times the fiddles were in danger of combusting, at others producing yelps, croaks and other animal sounds not countenanced by grade 8 of the Associated Board's exams. When it was all over, the only question was “How soon can we have them back?”
