Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

Beethoven’s string quartets weren’t known for being catchy. Quite the opposite: though they were admired, people were generally confused by this music and readily admitted that they didn’t understand it. The piece that made all the difference was the String Quartet op. 127. People not only liked it, it went straight to their heart – and when Beethoven died, the slow movement of the quartet was performed at his funeral, a soprano singing words of farewell to its melody. In our concert, Beethoven’s late work will be presented alongside a Haydn quartet dating from the latter’s Sturm und Drang period. A delightful pairing that the award-winning young Aris Quartett will be supplementing with a newly-written commissioned work.
