Quatuor Ebène play Beethoven quartets at Zankel Hall

Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall

881 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

Beethoven’s string quartets are road maps that chart his development as a composer. His String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 18, No. 6, is a progressive work with an unforgettable final-movement dialogue between melancholy and jolly spirits. The “Serioso” Quartet is true to its nickname; it’s an impassioned work with a tremendous intensity in its stormy struggles, and only finds victory in its final measures. The String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 127, has episodes of daring harmonic exploration and a magnificent set of second-movement variations built on a lofty theme. —carnegiehall
