Programme Information

BEETHOVEN String Quartet in E flat Op.127
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in C sharp minor Op.131  

Beethoven’s late quartets represent the pinnacle of classical chamber music and are described by Robert Schumann as “standing on the boundary of all that has been attained by human art and imagination”. The Op.127 Quartet in E flat is instantly approachable and features a beautiful set of variations that are soothing and mysterious. The Quartet in C sharp minor, said to be the composer’s own favourite, is an intriguing work that illustrates perfectly why Beethoven stands out from his contemporaries.

“I have never thought of writing for reputation and honour. What I have in my heart must out: that is the reason why I compose.” Ludwig van Beethoven
