Haslemere17 May 2017
Pianist and composer Alissa Firsova and The Tippett Quartet, will perform together in a thrilling collaboration. Alissa, who stunned Haslemere Festival audiences in 2015 with her wonderful recital with Jessica Hayes, will now be appearing as a composer as well as an outstanding pianist. The programme includes her new string quartet, which was inspired by the poems of Alfred, Lord Tennyson and by the beautiful countryside around Haslemere. The programme includes classics such as Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E flat, Op 12, Dvorak’s Piano Quintet in A Major as well as Alissa’s exciting new composition.
The world pemiere of Alissa’s quartet took place at Kings Place in November 2016 and is supported by Ambache Trust, RBW Trust and Nicholas Boas Charitable Trust.
