Join us for a night of classical music with the Kreutzer Quartet, featuring music from Beethoven and David Matthews
The Kreutzer Quartet have won acclaim for their long collaboration with the great British composer, David Matthews. His astounding 12th Quartet
was written for Wilton's music hall, where he is a firm favourite with audiences. He has shared a dialogue about Beethoven with the Kreutzers for many years, resulting not only in new works, but arrangements of Beethoven Piano works and even an 'extra' Diabelli Variation.
Come and see the collaboration in action.

With Diana Matthews
The members of the pioneering Kreutzer Quartet are the dedicatee of countless new works by composers including Michael Finnissy, David Matthews, Judith Weir, Judith Bingham, Poul Ruders, Robert Saxton, Jorg Widmann, Hans Werner Henze, George Rochberg, and many others. The quartet have recorded cycles of works by Matthews, Elliott Schwartz, Michael Tippett, Roberto Gerhard and Jeremy Dale Roberts, to name just a few. Although the quartet is in demand at major festivals from the Venice Biennale
to the Bergen Festpillerne
, Wilton's Music Hall is the heart of their activity. Over the past few years they have relished the opportunity to work in its wonderful acoustic and to develop and uniquely lively relationship with the audience there, and have developed an eclectic programming style in response to this unique venue.
