LvB250 – Beethoven´s String Quartets

Beethoven’s 16 string quartets performed by Cuarteto Casals.

Spanish string quartet Cuarteto Casals will perform all of Beethoven’s string quartets in 2020 – the big Beethoven year. They will be featured on two weekends in the spring and one weekend in the fall. Haydn was the father of the string quartet, and Mozart its brilliant trustee, but it was Beethoven who then transformed the art of the quartet into something tremendous. The 16 quartets came in three phases throughout his lifetime – and each phase comprised a dizzying stride forward for the art of the quartet.

When Madrid-based Cuarteto Casals celebrated its 20-year anniversary in 2017, they launched a project of six concerts woven around all of Beethoven’s quartets – at that time with a programme in which newly composed pieces were connected to Beethoven. Now the spotlight will shine solely on Beethoven, with all of the string quartets performed over the course of six concerts. Cuarteto Casals debuted at Konserthuset in 2007 and have returned several times, most recently in 2016.
