String Quartets 7 & 13, virtuosity and idiosyncrasy

Complex fugues are a matter of course in Beethoven's late work. Sometimes they are bursting at the seams, as in his String Quartet no. 13. His publisher found it too imposing and too demanding. Beethoven obligingly provided the quartet with a shorter and lighter ending. He then stubbornly published the original finale separately under the title Große Fuge. In this concert Quatuor Ebène reunite the pieces.

'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.
