ADD TO CART
“Profound commitment to playing music as if it was always being created anew.” Strings Magazine
“Utterly sublime” The New York Times

Having performed the complete Beethoven string quartet cycle multiple times worldwide, these long-time chamber music partners illustrate their “wonderfully ferocious and illuminating performance” (The Washington Post) in two concerts featuring six of Beethoven’s sixteen quartets. Formed in 1983, the Shanghai Quartet is renowned for its passionate musicality, impressive technique and multicultural innovations.

With their “admirable sense of ensemble and a lush Romanticism” (The Strad), the Shanghai Quartet’s rendition of Beethoven’s music is considered authoritative. The first evening features the first string quartet ever composed by Beethoven Op 18, the “Quartetto Serioso”, and the poignant Op 132, reflecting his life-threatening illness and joyous recovery. The second concert begins with his monumental “Second Razumovsky” quartet and finishes with two late quartets. A highlight of Beethoven 2020.
