Concert by Primrose Piano Quartet with Leon Bosch (Double Bass)

Featuring Schubert’s The Trout Quintet

Making Music Selected Artists

“...the gloriously natural and unforced interpretative approach of the Primrose Quartet...” Classic FM Magazine, Five Star review

The Primrose Piano Quartet was formed in 2004 by pianist John Thwaites and three of the UK's most renowned chamber musicians.  Alongside its performances of the major repertoire, the Primrose Quartet has researched widely the forgotten legacy of 20th century English composers, and has revived a number of remarkable and unjustly neglected piano quartets.  Its award-winning recordings feature works by Dunhill, Hurlstone, Quilter, Bax, Scott, Alwyn, Howells and Frank Bridge.

"I know he can play anything ... for solo Double Bass for he is a true virtuoso" - Sir Charles Groves

Leon Bosch has an honoured place among the select group of virtuoso double bass players worldwide. “Every note I play on the instrument embraces my life experiences, both in Europe and in my South African homeland.  I've known love and comradeship, but also witnessed the epitome of hatred.  I've felt both shining optimism and deep despair.  I've benefited from the pleasures of civilised society, but also seen the destructive impact of poverty and ignorance.  I've been privileged to stand side by side with people who've lost their lives in the defence of their principles.” - Leon Bosch
