Pre-concert talk by Misha Donat at 6:15pm
Venue: John Innes Conference Centre
- Beethoven: Quartet in G Op.18, No.2
- Bartók: Quartet, No.4
- Beethoven: Quartet in E minor Op.59, No.2 (‘Razumovsky’)
The Quatuor Ébène, one of the most versatile ensembles of its kind performing today, contrasts Beethoven’s witty quartet Op.18 No.2 with the more dramatic world of the second in his triptych of ‘Razumovsky’ quartets, Op.59. Bartók’s magisterial Fourth Quartet shows his idiosyncratic quartet writing at its most compelling.
