Rush-Hour Lates with Brodsky Quartet: Beethoven Op. 130

Concert V

Beethoven 250

Purcell Chaconne in G minor, Z730
Beethoven String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat, Op. 130 Große Fuge

‘The Brodskys’ ability to communicate on so many levels – humanity and virtuosity all part of the essential integrity of their approach…’ The Guardian


In this special anniversary series, the acclaimed Brodsky Quartet perform Beethoven’s late string quartets, one at a time, lovingly set up with musical preludes.

The quartet complete the cycle with Beethoven’s Op. 130, the penultimate of the last quartets, and the most radical. In its six movement structure, the composer confronts his listeners with extremes: unison and dense polyphony, complexity and simplicity, propulsion and hesitation.

There is the famous Cavatina, which, according to the original second violinist Karl Holz, ‘brought out the confession that nothing he had written had so moved him’. Beethoven was persuaded to create a slighter ending than the ‘great fugue’ which originally closed the quartet (see concert on Thursday 19 March) and this witty Allegro is chosen here.

The recital is prefaced with one of Purcell’s Chaconnes.

Please note this concert will last approximately 50 mins and there will be no interval.


The Brodsky Quartet performed the ‘Cavatina’ from Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat, Op. 130 at the 2017 Prinsengrachtconcert in Amsterdam:
