Leonkoro Quartet

This is a past event which has now ended.

Haydn String Quartet in C Major Op. 33 No. 3 ‘The Bird’
Ravel String Quartet

Founded in Berlin in 2019, and recent winners of the Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, the Leonkoro Quartet ‘has enormous stage presence, glows for the music, takes full risks and amazes with its empathy for the respective sound of the pieces’.

The ensemble is framed by brothers Jonathan and Lukas Schwarz on first violin and cello, with Amelie Wallner on second violin and Mayu Konoe on viola providing the middle voices. ‘Leonkoro’, meaning ‘Lionheart’ in Esperanto, alludes to Astrid Lindgren’s children’s book about two brothers; a book that juxtaposes the grave reality of death with a heartfelt consolation, a theme which frequently runs through the quartet’s music.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
