SKIPTON Music says it is delighted to be able to finally play host to the internationally renowned Brodsky Quartet as part of its current season of concerts.

The quartet's concert at Skipton Town Hall on Tuesday, November 28 will be the third attempt to bring the ensemble to Skipton - previous concerts in 2020 and 2021 had to be cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Since their inception in 1972, the Brodsky Quartet has captivated audiences worldwide, delivering more than 3,000 performances on the most prestigious stages across the globe.

Recently celebrating its 50th anniversary, the quartet has undertaken numerous performances of complete cycles of quartets by Schubert, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Britten, Schoenberg, Zemlinsky, Webern, and Bartok.

But, it is the complete Shostakovich cycle that the group is best known. A 2012 performance of the Shostakovich cycle in London earned the quartet the prestigious title of 'Artistic Associate' at London's Kings Place.

The Skipton concert will feature Beethoven's String Quartet No.15; Karen Tanaka ‘At the Grave of Beethoven’ and Shostakovich String quartet No 4.

Tickets are available online at:; in person or by phone from Skipton Town Hall Box Office. Tickets may also be bought on the door, with cash and subject to availability.

The season continues on Tuesday January 23 with Meliora Collective.  Tickets from Skipton Town Hall. Find out more about Skipton Music and details of the current season, visit:
