Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Belcea Quartet is one of Britain’s, if not the world’s, leading string quartets. In this all-Beethoven programme, they will perform quartets spanning his whole life. His first and last quartets are performed alongside one of his ‘middle period’ quartets, written for the Russian ambassador, Count Razumovsky.

“This is the Belcea single-mindedly fathoming the emotional recesses of the composer’s psyche, every interpretation steeped in a pregnancy of feeling, a vast recreative experience that harks back to the untrammelled foresight of the Busch Quartet at its best – but reconsidered and revitalised for our time. Yes, it’s that good.”
