Agathe String Sextet in Concert

Agathe

With: Viara Markova (violin), Dorota Swart(violin), Vladimir Ivanov (viola), Tessa Olivier (viola), Toni Ivanova (cello), Maren du Plessis (cello)

These concerts will include works by Brahms and Borodin, written specifically for string sextet.  We will also play some Poulenc piano pieces exquisitely arranged for string sextet by Keith Moss.  The string sextet is an extremely powerful medium of expression and especially so at the hand of these professional musicians.

Critical acclaim for the Agathe Sextet by Paul Boekooi (Die Beeld):  “. . .  the most distinctive aspect of six musicians was their like-minded approach. The tension was organically increased, but the musicians never lost sight of giving the important passages space to breathe.”
