Program III

Beethoven Op. 130 & Op. 133 in "mysterious company"

"There isn't a more explosive composition of Beethoven's than the famous (and infamous!) Quartet op. 130 in its' original form:
with the Great Fugue as its' crowning (or rather as is the case here: shattering!) finale.
The structure of this great quartet cannot be described as harmonious. Its six movements seem to be deliberately designed to
be very awkward "neighbours". What we have set out to achieve in this concert idea is to "expand" and "flesh out" the structure
of this work by interspersing its six movements with...music by other composers.

Today's modern technology offers us immediate access to all kinds of music and, as a result, we often find ourselves listening
without knowing what it is that we are hearing. Aren't such moments making us listen to the music we hear with a greater than
usual sense of alertness and openness? If so, than this is a quality which Beethoven surely would have relished..."
