RAP is delighted to announce Archaeus Quartet performing Beethoven’s Cycle of String Quartets for us over the next 3 years. These will take place in St Mary’s Church Salehurst in the autumn and spring, starting with the first one on 1st October 2016.
The programme will be:

Quartet in F Op.135

Archaeus Quartet member Liz Turnbull says:
‘Despite the fact that we have a body of quartets by Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Dvorak, Shostakovich and Bartok there is something unique in the journey through the quartets of Beethoven. They are the pinnacle, the “Everest” of quartet music for both player and listener.
Beethoven journeyed further over his lifetime expressively, conceptually and emotionally than any other composer. The early quartets reflect the classical beauty of Haydn and Mozart, the middles reflect the independent “heroic” Beethoven, and the late quartets transcend all others in their philosophy and expression of humanity. The string quartet is itself an instrument of perfect balance played by four people, and it is this which enables Beethoven to express his most profound, intimate and universal thoughts.’
