CONCERTS in the West presents the Eusebius Quartet this September.

The four founding members of the Eusebius Quartet first met as teenagers while studying before going their separate ways.

They then reunited in 2015 to form their extraordinary quartet, which is named after Eusebius, a dreamy fictional character created by Robert Schumann.

All the musicians share a passion for the intricate music written for quartets, but they are not afraid to experiment with other different styles of playing.

They are undoubtedly making a name for themselves with their imaginative and communicative performances and in 2018 they were finalists in the Royal Overseas League Competition.

Founder and director of Concerts in the West, Catherine Maddocks, said: “The Eusebius Quartet enjoys exploring new repertoire and experimenting with new styles of playing.

“They have performed with Alasdair Beatson (who played for us in May) and clarinettists, Matthew Hunt and Michael Collins among others.

“They are keen to share their love of chamber music with young people, setting up several projects with schools in London and Lewes.

“However on this tour they will be working with the Centre for Young Musicians Taunton.”

The Quartet will be performing at Ilminster Arts Centre on September 6 at 7:30pm and The Dance House in Crewkerne on September 7 at 7:30pm, as well as various other venues in Somerset.

The concerts run from September 5 until 7. For more information visit
