Alfred Brendel to host Pro Corda quartet masterclass

We are delighted that one of our star Pro Corda Senior Course quartets has been selected for a prestigious masterclass opportunity with concert pianist legend Alfred Brendel. The Aristeia Quartet – Bella and Max Todes, Hannah Dienes-Williams, and Dominic Stokes – will perform to Brendel in Paris in January.

They will work on Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue, which they performed at Pro Corda’s 50th Anniversary Concert at London’s Southbank last month.

Commenting on the quartet’s success, Pro Corda’s CEO Andrew Quartermain said “I am thrilled that Bella, Hannah, Dom and Max will have this opportunity. They are so deserving of it, and I know that their session with Alfred Brendel will be one that stays with them forever. I was lucky enough to be coached by him as a child and his words, humour and inspiration have never left me. And to be coached by Brendel with the backdrop of  Paris – what better?!”

To hear why they’ve been selected, here is a reminder of their Anniversary Concert performance:
