An evening of contrasts. Some commentators believe Beethoven’s extraordinary Quartet, Op. 59, No 3 “Razumovsky”, written in 1806, has a connection with the tragedy of his progressive deafness. Defiance and energy are shot through the music from start to finish. Inspired by a summer trip to the Alps, Schubert’s much loved Trout Quintet with its engaging freshness is one of the most popular chamber music works of all time. The Quatuor Modigliani, which has now established itself as one of the most sought-after quartets of its generation, are joined by Boris Giltburg and Graham Mitchell for this unmissable concert.
