Beethoven and His Followers – Beethoven String Quartet Series II

Friday, April 12, 2013 20:00     Dom Pedro V Theatre     Tickets: MOP 40

Rossini: Sonata for Wind Quartet No. 1 in F Major
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 3 in D Major, Op. 18, No. 3
Bartók: String Quartet No. 2

With his fifteen string quartets, each more complex and daring than the previous, Beethoven deigned to challenge himself – as well as future generations of composers – to find something significant and unique to contribute to the ever-changing musical landscape. Bartók might very well have met Beethoven’s mandate with his own set of compelling string quartets. Members of the Macao Orchestra explore the intricate terrains of these chamber masterworks and hope you will take part alongside their inspired journey.
