Program

The Three String Quartets, Op. 59 – named after the Count, to whom they are dedicated, Razumovsky -  marked a turning point in the compositional career of L. van Beethoven, who finally dared to move away from classical conventions. They are technically difficult works, with contrasts of dynamics and an almost symphonic magnitude of sound. At Razumovsky's request, the first Quartet includes a popular Russian theme that characterises the last movement.

The "Quartettsatz", which is the first movement of a string quartet that Franz Schubert never finished, has a certain tragic air. It is one of the composer’s last works.

The String Quartet No. 14, Op. 142 is the penultimate quartet that Dmitri Shostakovich composed, when he was already seriously ill. The cello plays a predominant role.

In Officium breve in memoriam Andreae Szervánszky Op. 28, György Kurtág pays a posthumous tribute to Szervánszky and Anton Webern, two of his great musical influences.

In-side, the fourth piece from the Brains cycle will also be performed. Misato Mochizuki composed the pieces which are based on research into brain function.
