The first chamber music recital of the autumn is a feast of string quartets at Turku Castle. Prokofiev’s String Quartet no. 1 is rarely performed but is brisk, rhythmic and energetic. It is paired with Debussy’s classic, a more Impressionist and freely conceived number. Dessert, as it were, comes in the form of the lovely and popular piano piece Claire de lune, arranged here for string quartet.
