Festspiel: String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam

The string quartet can in fact be summed up in five extraordinary works: the late Beethoven quartets. These works transcend all boundaries and have retained their contemporary relevance for the past two centuries. The music is permeated by personal struggle and constantly shifts between unfathomable complexity and ethereal beauty. Using just four instrumental voices Beethoven redefined music’s universal expressive power. On six separate evenings one of these quartets will be performed at 10.30 pm.

Op. 131 unfolds full of melancholy and at times an almost oppressive gravity, but gradually it emerges towards the light. The music takes occasional unprecedented twists and turns in typical Beethovian fashion. Ultimately, though, it never really reaches the light. Something keeps Beethoven anchored to the ground.
