Fretwork: For Four

Asako Morikawa, Emily Ashton, Sam Stadlen and Richard Boothby – viols

Winner of the 2017 Royal Philharmonic Society ’Chamber Music and Song’ prize, Fretwork return to the Barber Institute with their programme, For Four, presenting renaissance and baroque quartets from England, France, Germany and Italy. In the 25 years since their formation, they have performed all over the world and their recordings of the classic English viol repertory have become the benchmark by which all others are judged.
