Description

Sibelius's "Voces intimae" resides at the heart of this Winter Festival, and it alludes to both the conversational aspect of chamber music and the composer's own life. The Escher String Quartet, described as "one of the finest quartets of their generation" by The Guardian, performs this powerful piece along with masterworks by Berg and Schubert.
