Clemency Burton-Hill presents a live concert of chamber music from Cadogan Hall, featuring the Escher Quartet in works by Debussy and Hugh Wood. Debussy's String Quartet is a relatively early work in the composer's output, a colourful and daring piece with an improvisatory tone.

Hugh Wood completed his String Quartet No. 4 for a BBC commission and it was recently selected for Encore - a partnership scheme between the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3. Cast in four-movements, it's a tightly written and passionate work.
