Classical music night with a gypsy twist
A unique and original string quintet will be taking to the Revelation St Mary stage with a programme of classical songs – with a gypsy twist!
ZRI will be performing an evening of chamber music masterpieces, reimagined with gypsy and Hungarian flair.
On Saturday, June 9 from 7.45pm to 9.45pm, the fivepiece will take on Schubert’s String Quintet in C with a new line-up, including a clarinet, cymbalom and accordion.
Matthew Sharp, member of the quintet and one of Revelation St Mary’s directors, said: “Our performance is an attempt to go through the looking glass to present the much-loved String Quintet in the full glory of its radicalism and originality.”
ZRI take their name from ‘Zum Roten Igel’, the name of a major concert venue in Vienna but also of the tavern just behind it, where bands played and composers caroused into the night – at one point Schubert even lived next door. The group have been described as magical, passionate and emotionally charged - definitely one to watch.
