Intermezzo String Quartet, Lake District, Cumbria

Our repertoire

Intermezzo String Quartet Cumbria

Intermezzo String Quartet's repertoire is extensive and varied and through regular rehearsals we are able to add to and update it. We play a large selection of popular classics from composers such as Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, and Haydn. We also love playing swing arrangements of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Kern, Bernstein and others, as well as ragtime music, show tunes, ballads, modern well known tunes, and more.

We always do our best to accommodate any particular requests which are not on our repertoire list. So if it is possible and practical to obtain or compose an arrangement of a particular piece of music which is special to you, we will do so.

Excerpts from some pieces can be heard played by the quartet: Cock Linnet (fun!) (Collins), Makin' Whoopee (Donaldson), Salut d'amour (Elgar), Queen of Sheba (Handel), The folks who live on the hill (Kern), Arias from Marriage of Figaro (Mozart), Canon (Pachelbel), Romance (Shostakovitch), Moonlight in Vermont (Suessdorf), Four seasons: "Spring" (Vivaldi) and Four seasons: "Summer" (Vivaldi). These can also be heard on our demonstration CD (available on request).
