The Belcea Quartet offers an extraordinary concert whose objective is to set in perspective one of Beethoven’s most impressive scores: the Thirteenth Quartet and its Great fugue, which will be performed along with quotes or movements from other works, written before or after, with which it resonates. The challenge taken up by the London-based quartet is to reveal how this music creates a bridge between past and future.
This concert is certain to be one of the most intriguing musical experiences of the season, with the nature of the programme, and the names of the other works, to be kept secret until the last moment.
Prepare to be amazed!
