Posthumously discovered by Moeran’s widow in 1950, British composer Ernest John Moeran’s E flat quartet is an early work, set in two movements in a relaxed mood, and full of echoes of Ireland, where Moeran spent much of his life. Borodin’s second quartet (with the famous ‘Notturno’) continues the programme, before Dvorak’s 12th quartet, composed during the composer’s time in the United States, provides a light-hearted, celebratory finale to the evening!
