Ludwig van Beethoven

String Quartet no. 10 op. 74 ‘Harp’

Bushra El-Turk

Three tributes for string Quartet (world premiere)

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 her new string quartet Three tributes*.

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.

*Three tributes is co-commissioned for the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam by the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam.
