Rising Stars – Quatuor Arod
A weekend of chamber music with tomorrow’s stars.
Saturday 2 February 2019 16.00Ends approximately 18.00
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. In a unique and forward-looking partnership between 21 of Europe’s leading concert halls, six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour all of the concert halls and perform before an international audience. Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars have internationally successful careers.
The young musicians of Quatuor Arod met at the renowned conservatory in Paris in 2013. The quartet has won several prestigious awards and appears at festivals such as Verbier, Aix-en-Provence, Bremen Music Festival and Mozart Festival Würzburg, among many others.
The programme they are presenting includes music by Joseph Haydn, newly composed music by the acclaimed French composer, violinist and conductor Benjamin Attahir, and in conclusion, Beethoven’s quartet in C-major, Opus 59:3. It is the last of the three famous Razumovsky quartets, which were dedicated to the Russian ambassador in Vienna, Count Razumovsky. This music is filled with joy, light and tenderness, but as is often the case with Beethoven, also a healthy dose of drama.
Nominated by Bozar Brussels and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
