Music in the Round presents Ensemble 360: Beethoven 250
Join the worldwide celebrations marking the 250th birthday of Beethoven, one of classical music’s greatest composers.
The music this evening takes us to the extremes of Beethoven’s character. The Grosse Fuge is celebrated for its dramatic nature, while the early Quartet in G is rich in wit and humour and Shostakovich’s popular Quintet is the perfect complement.
BEETHOVEN Grosse Fuge in B flat Op.133
SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Quintet in G minor Op.57
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in G Op.18 No.2
