Ian Wilson’s ‘Across a clear blue sky’ was written in 2009, inspired by Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘Horace and the Thunder’, written following the attacks on New York’s World Trade Center on September 11th 2001.

The Esposito Quartet opens this autumn season with performances marking the twentieth anniversary of that atrocity. Ian Wilson’s work is followed by Korngold’s first quartet, completed in Vienna in 1923. The programme opens with Mozart’s great F major quartet from 1790, famously written for the cellist King of Prussia.
