Brentano Quartet

March 22

Sunday 22nd March 2020, 3:00pm

Venue: John Innes Conference Centre

 

Mendelssohn. Quartet in A, Op.13
Mario Davidovsky. Quartet No.5
Beethoven. Quartet in A minor, Op.132

The Brentano Quartet, one of America’s leading string quartets, offer a programme centred around Beethoven’s late quartet Op.132, with its famous ‘Holy Song of Thanksgiving’. Mendelssohn’s miraculously youthful Op.13 quartet was composed hard on the heels of Beethoven’s and although plainly influenced by it, is a highly original piece in its own right. The Argentine composer Mario Davidovsky inscribes his Fifth Quartet as being “With thanks to Opus 132”.
