Pacifica Quartet

Buy Now

Exhilarating, exuberant, virtuosic: the Pacifica Quartet has won hearts around the world for its passionate performances. Treading that miraculous line between naked emotion and scrupulous musicianship, a concert with the Pacificas becomes an engrossing sensory experience for the audience.

Such intensity throws a brilliant light onto the pure, architectural beauty of a cherished Haydn quartet. Mendelssohn’s magnificent first string quartet shows its teenage composer’s obsession with Beethoven. The heart-on-sleeve, melodic riches of these two early Romantic geniuses are natural territory for these performers.

Nigel Westlake fits perfectly in this context, offering players and listeners an enticing palette of lyricism and rhythm. The Pacifica Quartet perform works that they are known best for; music that leaves no listener unmoved.
