Overflowing with energy, invention and rustic melody, Glazunov’s String Quintet in A major is a charming curtain-raiser for this intimate Sunday matinee chamber concert. This will be followed by Schubert’s C major String Quintet which is a firm favourite on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, with over 70 guests selecting it as a castaway essential since the programme started in 1942.
