Beethoven String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132
The recital will be preceded with an introductory talk by members of the Elgin Quartet about Beethoven’s op 132 Quartet and its historical context, accompanied by musical examples.
The Elgin String Quartet was formed by members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Chamber music in all its different ensemble variations has always been a corner stone of the four musicians’ activities. They relish the musical and technical challenges that the genre of the string quartet demands in particular, as well as its communicative possibilities and the huge variety of the repertoire available. Their special interest focuses on works of contemporary and lesser-known composers.
Passionate about education and outreach work, the Elgin String Quartet have reached young audiences all over the UK through mentoring students and conducting workshops.
