String Quartets 1, 9 & 10, pizzicato and passion

A handful of bars with pizzicato tones, reminiscent of a plucked harp, were enough for Beethoven's publisher to dub his tenth quartet the Harp Quartet. The work’s heroic tone, sudden mood changes and the dark intensity of its Adagio have a great affinity with the famous Fifth Symphony.

'Not to be missed!'

Jeroen Vanacker

‘I’m very happy that despite everything we are able to welcome French ensemble Quatuor Ebène to Bruges. Their treating audiences to all of Beethoven's string quartets is a truly unique tour de force. The world tour of this prestigious project sadly had to be abandoned, but fortunately for us that means the quartet can now unexpectedly present the premiere of their contribution to Beethoven Year here in Bruges.
