Thursday 2nd May
7.00pm - 8.45pm
Complete Beethoven String Quartets 3/6 with the Endellion String Quartet
Tickets: £13 - £21. Free for 25s and under
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the acclaimed British ensemble continues its Cedars Hall Beethoven cycle with op.18 no.5 and the famous ‘Harp’ quartet op.74. We also hear the last major work Beethoven finished, his quartet in F major op.135 which, in its playful but profound simplicity seems - after decades of struggle - to have attained for its composer some kind of simple, fundamental truth.
The pre-concert talk by Gavin Plumley at 6.15pm explores the relationship between Beethoven and the philosophers of his time.
