LETTER: Where were the music lovers?

There was a fine start to the new season of chamber music at the Under Ground Theatre on Sunday, when the Archaeus Quartet played the first three of 12 Beethoven quartets they’ll be performing in Eastbourne. Elizabeth Turnbull (viola) made some entertaining connections between the composer’s revolutionary music, life and personality: being a genius and a rather difficult character he was apparently ‘excused etiquette’.

I was surprised to see more empty seats than I’d expected, given the high quality of this performance. Hopefully when the current fine weather ends the rest of Eastbourne’s music lovers will come in from the cold for what looks to be a varied and stimulating programme of recitals until May.
