The happy combination of Lewes pianist Nancy Cooley with the Fitzwilliam String Quartet brings us a programme of entirely English music: from Purcell through to Uckfield-based Julian Broughton.  The Fitzwilliams are celebrating their 50th anniversary: in March 1969, four first-year Cambridge undergraduates gave a concert in Churchill College.  Alan George was one of those four.  Since then the quartet have been tireless promoters of new music (premiering Shostakovich’s last quartets) and were also early champions of period instruments.  After a long residency at York, they now enjoy one, appropriately, at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.
