Festival: String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam

Each festival edition features a concert on the Friday evening that breaks with all conventions: a staged, spectacularly unique event of unprecedented length that provides the string quartet with a new canvas to play with. Eight works for string quartet – each more unorthodox than the other – with Different Trainsand Cadenza on the Night Plain as the programme’s two main focal points.

Embark on a four-hour journey exploring humanity and human endeavour – destruction, beauty, emotion and their natural limits. The journey takes in five substantial but highly unusual works of the string quartet canon: Fratres, Different Trains, Górecki’s second string quartet, Structures for String Quartet and Cadenza on the Night Plain.

The pre-concert talk will be given at 7.15pm by Alex Ross (in English)
