Ludwig van Beethoven
String Quartet no. 10 op. 74 ‘Harp’
In 1809, Beethoven wrote three important works: the Fifth Piano Concerto, the Piano Sonata “Les adieux”, and his Tenth String Quartet. All these compositions – coincidence or not – are in the same key, E-flat major. The quartet is nicknamed the “Harp Quartet” because of the ample amount of pizzicato in the first movement. The techniques used by Bushra El-Turk in her contemporary idiom will be demonstrated by the members of the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam at the world premiere of this brand-new composition.
The Selected by series offers great works – side by side, opposite each other; connected or contrasting. In an hour, you can hear the string quartet in its full breadth: all times, styles, sounds, and colors.
