Ainsi la Nuit

BEETHOVEN
String Quartet in C sharp minor op 131


We invite you to join us on a fascinating 70-minute musical journey as we traverse two seven-movement string quartets, by Beethoven and Dutilleux.

Many regard Beethoven’s late quartets as the holy grail of his contribution to
the genre. The composer’s monumental String Quartet in C sharp minor op 131 stands apart from them all in its breadth and originality. In the 250th year since the master composer’s birth, we are excited to take on this towering work.

Fast-forward 150 years and French composer Henri Dutilleux looked to Beethoven for inspiration. In his career, Dutilleux wrote only one string quartet and he made it count. A shining example of 20th century quartet repertoire, Ainsi la Nuit is architectural, modern and completely original in its composition and will captivate through its evocative, poetic and sensuous qualities.
