Repertoire

Over the course of nearly 40 years the Bingham Quartet has performed and recorded a huge variety of chamber music! They have played most of the major works in the repertoire, but have never shied away from contemporary music – instead championing many young composers over the years, and recording many lesser known pieces.

Their concert programmes are therefore imaginative and varied, as they can draw upon a wide range of music. Programmes are tailor-made to meet promoter’s requirements. The following list is in no way intended to be comprehensive, but might prove useful as a guide to the range of repertoire available.

  • Haydn – wide range available
  • Mozart – “Hunt”, “Dissonance” and most of the well-known quartets, plus the clarinet quintet
  • Schubert – “Death and the Maiden”, A minor, and other works including the cello quintet
  • Beethoven – all quartets are available!
  • Dvorak – “American”, op.51
  • Mendelssohn – several pieces available, including the octet
  • Shostakovich – several works including quartets 1, 3, 7, 8 & music-bsq 9
  • Britten – quartets 1, 2 and 3
