Aris Quartett

Sunday matinee : Music from Beethoven, Haydn, Mochizuki.

Description Program Artists

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.
