About Edinburgh International Festival: Europa Galante & Fabio Biondi

Mozart & Monza Milanese Quartets

Sizzling energy; blazing vitality. Italian period instrument group Europa Galante and founding director Fabio Biondi match taut, thrillingly virtuosic playing with sheer joyful exuberance.

They have shone brilliant new light on baroque classics to worldwide acclaim. For this special recital, Biondi slims his ensemble down to an intimate gathering of just four players, to explore some of the earliest and freshest string quartets.

Mozart began writing quartets in his teens, and Biondi and his group journey through four of these youthful, ebullient gems, which brim over with opera-influenced melody. They contrast them with quartets by Italian composer Carlo Monza – almost unknown to us now, but a major figure in the 18th century, and creator of music of rare invention and drama.

This concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 at a future date.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Europa Galante & Fabio Biondi are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
