Music at Oxford is thrilled to present the award-winning Notos Quartet as part of their 40th Anniversary Season. For their Oxford debut, the quartet have devised a rich programme centred around youth, nature, and Oxford itself: Walton’s Piano Quartet was written when he was 16 and published whilst he was studying in Oxford. Mahler was also 16 when he wrote his Piano Quartet in A minor and along with Brahms, all were inspired by nature.
