BIENNALE LIVE / Ricercare: Quartets in Quarantine

The String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam goes live! Now that playing together is impossible, we take Goethe’s metaphor for string quartet – ‘a rational conversation among four people’ – literally; over the next few weeks, every week we’ll bring together four different players of four different string quartets in conversations called ‘Ricercare: Quartets in Quarantine’. This way we explore (with Cuarteto Quiroga’s Cibrán Sierra as moderator) what this quarantine means for string quartets all over the world.
