Presented by: The New Zealand String Quartet
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. 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.
Acclaimed world-wide for their performances of Beethoven’s music, join the NZSQ for an unforgettable programme that will take you on a wild ride through the composer’s inimitable soundscape, from counterpoint and fugue to the passions and complexities of Romanticism. Prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist.
Beethoven: Virtuoso follows Beethoven's evolution from the bold virtuosity of his earlier works through to the incredible storytelling of the late quartets.
