Vanbrugh Quartet - The Beethoven String Quartets – Autumn Season

Vanbrugh Quartet - The Beethoven String Quartets – Autumn Season

Friday, 4 December 2020, 8.00pm

This event is online

The Vanbrugh Quartet was based in Cork from 1986 to 2017 and gave close to three thousand concerts worldwide as well as releasing more than thirty CDs of repertoire ranging from the complete Beethoven quartets to many contemporary Irish works. Members of the Vanbrugh Quartet come together once more to take part in this unique celebration of Beethoven’s music.

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].
