Join the worldwide celebrations marking the 250th birthday of Beethoven, one of classical music’s greatest composers.
Beethoven’s quartets are often defined as originating from the composer’s ‘early’, ‘middle’ or ‘late’ period. This programme has an example from each and offers a fascinating snapshot of how his work developed, from the early inspiration of Haydn to the unique voice of the later quartets that still resonates so powerfully today.
