This year’s series of hour-long lunchtime recitals at the Guildhall, in the heart of the city, is launched by the New York-based Escher String Quartet, former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and regular performers at Wigmore Hall in London. Their programme consists of one of Mozart’s six quartets dedicated to Haydn, who on hearing them declared that Mozart was “the greatest composer known to me either in person or by name”, and a Quartet full of energy and lyricism by Mendelssohn.
