This year the New Zealand String Quartet are celebrating a massive composer with a massive tour. The 2020 National Tour brings Beethoven back on his 250th birthday, travelling throughout New Zealand between June and October. This is your chance to rejoice in these charismatic and distinctive works, played heart and soul by the NZSQ.
Written throughout his life, Beethoven’s string quartets remain, like his symphonies, some of the most remarkable classical music ever composed. Don’t miss this extraordinary music on tour.
“That dubious cliché about music being the universal language almost comes true with Beethoven. No composer has ever lived who speaks so directly to so many people.” Leonard Bernstein
Reset your expectations at each of these exceptional and individual quartets. Prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist. Acclaimed world-wide for their performances of Beethoven’s music, join the NZSQ for an unforgettable programme of Beethoven’s String Quartets.
