The Apollon Musagète Quartett performs music by Mendelssohn and Shostakovich live at Wigmore Hall in London.

The Polish quartet (recently appointed Radio 3 New Generation Artists) has gained a reputation for being one of the most charismatic and creative chamber groups around.

Today they take on Mendelssohn’s meditative quartet in A minor, Op 13 and Shostakovich’s rather brooding Fourth String Quartet in D, Op. 83.

The programme is presented by Katie Derham.
