part of the Migrations String Quartet Weekend

Beethoven String Quartet in C minor, Op. 18 No. 4
Julian Anderson New Work
Beethoven String Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 127

British composer Julian Anderson is among the most esteemed and influential composers of his generation. Influenced by the folk music of Eastern Europe and by the modality of Indian ragas, much of his music combines with elements of modernism, spectral music and electronic music to make up what Gramophone calls “the composer’s vivid, transfixing sound worlds”. For this concert, Anderson’s new work is a centrepiece, nestled between two of Beethoven’s String Quartets; Op. 18, No. 4 said to demonstrate Beethoven’s total mastery of the classical string quartet and Op. 127, the first of Beethoven’s ‘late quartets’, and is often regarded as his greatest musical achievement.
