Vanbrugh Quartet - The Best Of Beethoven

Vanbrugh Quartet - The Best Of Beethoven

Sunday, 20 June 2021, 8.00pm

This event is Online

The Vanbrugh Quartet was based in Cork from 1986 to 2017 and gave close to 3,000 concerts worldwide as well as releasing more than thirty CDs of repertoire ranging from the complete Beethoven quartets to many contemporary Irish works.

The fourth in the set of Op.18 quartets is in Beethoven’s turbulent key of C minor and the first movement is highly theatrical in its portrayal of restlessness and conflict. The F major quartet Op.135, almost the last music that Beethoven wrote, is serene and conversational, its divine slow movement giving way to the finale entitled Der schwer gefaßte Entschluß [The difficult resolution].
