The renowned Jerusalem Quartet, hailed for its ‘personality, integrity and lustrous tone’ (The Washington Post), features in the first chamber concert of the Festival, performing two of Beethoven’s illustrious quartets for strings.
The last major work Beethoven completed, the Quartet for Strings in F major, contemplates the legacy of his own chamber music. From the opening Allegretto, Beethoven acknowledges the classical influences of Mozart and Haydn in the unravelling counterpoint and, in the Lento, produces a contemplative and hymn-like movement that expresses a quiet and tender beauty, moving the listener.
