Brodsky Quartet improves the world

by | 27 January 2024 | Gainsborough, Music

February can be a bleak month as winter drags on and spring is still a distant prospect. In such times, music can have a positive, immediate impact on our mental state.

Fast tempos can psychologically and physiologically arouse us, helping energize us for the day. Slower, meditative tunes can help us to relax and lower our stress levels.

The Strad describe The Brodsky Quartet as ‘players who give unstintingly of their passion and energies, playing with a spirit so transformational you felt they were actually improving the world’. If there ever was a time when we need music to improve the world, it’s now.

Since its formation in 1972 The Brodsky Quartet has performed over 3,000 concerts on the major stages of the world and released more than 60 recordings. A natural curiosity and insatiable desire to explore has propelled the group in many artistic directions and continues to ensure them not only a place at the very forefront of the international chamber music scene but also a rich and varied musical existence.

Their energy and craftsmanship have attracted numerous awards and accolades worldwide, while ongoing educational work provides a vehicle for passing on experience and staying in touch with the next generation.

The Brodsky Quartet will be performing live on Friday 2nd February, 7.30pm, for The Scunthorpe and North Lincolnshire Concert Society, a registered charity that has been staging events for almost 80 years. Works will feature Bach, Debussy and Schubert.

Tickets cost £18.00 and children / students attend free with an accompanying adult. The venue is Outwood Academy Foxhills, Foxhills Road, Scunthorpe DN15 8LJ.

The theatre is modern but cosy. Go along with a friend or on your own as you will receive a warm welcome and the chance to win a raffle prize. For more details visit
