Clas­si­cal mu­sic night with a gypsy twist

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

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.
