“I’ve been raving about this group since the German label Audite released the first volume in their Beethoven string quartet cycle. The Quartetto di Cremona is absolutely the full Mediterranean Monty with their big, open, attacking sound, robust and muscular projection, hyper-confidence of comprehension and delivery” The Herald
Beethoven Quartet in C minor Op 18 No 4
Beethoven Quartet in F minor Op 95 ‘Serioso’
Beethoven Quartet in A minor Op 132
The Cremona Quartet have received extraordinary critical acclaim for their Beethoven recordings and this evening offers a marvellous opportunity to hear them in three widely different masterpieces from the three stages of Beethoven’s career. The impassioned verve of the youthful quartet Op.18 No.4 leads through the mature classicism of the Serioso quartet to the visionary world of the late quartets, where Beethoven’s composition reaches an entirely new plane — music which astonished his contemporaries and continues to grip audiences today. The extraordinary slow movement of Op.132 is quite simply one of the finest musical utterances of all time.
