FOUR of Scotland's finest young classical musicians are set to entertain Melrose at the weekend.

The Brodick String Quartet will perform in Melrose Parish Church Hall.

Having individually studied at the Royal College of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland the quartet met post-study whilst working in Glasgow in groups such as BBC SSO, Scottish Ensemble, Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera, RSNO and London Concertante.

Formed in 2016 the Brodick Quartet's recent performances have included Aberdeen Sound Festival, Cottiers Chamber Project, and a UK premiere.

And they are passionate about attracting audiences who might not normally approach a classical concert, and each has their own broad musical tastes outside the classical genre.

Ben Norris plays first violin, Katrina Lee second violin, Rhoslyn Lawton the viola and the cellist is Alice Allen.

The concert begins with Mozart’s Quartet in G major, K387, nicknamed ‘The Spring’, written in honour of the ‘Father’ of string quartets, Joseph Haydn, in 1782, and in four movements.

Following this, the young musicians will play Beethoven’s Quartet in C minor, Opus 18 No. 4.

A key often used by the composer for works of dramatic intensity, such as his 5th Symphony, here it explores an emotional depth, particularly in the opening first movement, as with the Mozart quartet, there are four movements.

Brahms lyrical Quartet Opus 51 No. 2 in A minor concludes the programme.

Tickets, priced at £14 for non-members of the Melrose Music Society and free for accompanied school-age children, are available on the door.

Saturday's concert starts at 7.30 pm,
