Beethoven Quartet Op.18 No.1 in F
Tippett Quartet No.2
Mendelssohn Quartet in E minor Op.44 No.2
Better worlds: Beethoven’s youthful first string quartet is the start of one of the
greatest journeys in all music. Michael Tippett wrote his Second Quartet while facing imprisonment for his beliefs: the result positively dances with life and hope. And Mendelssohn’s E minor Quartet is the sound of a romantic genius stretching his wings and starting to soar, ending the season with the promise of a whole new adventure.
