Internationally acclaimed for its ‘powerful’ sound (The Australian) and ‘intuitive’ music-making (Limelight magazine), Australia’s Tinalley String Quartet has established itself as one of the finest string quartets of its generation.
Tinalley String Quartet returns for a concert filled with emotional potency and pathos by two of the string quartet’s greatest proponents, Beethoven and Mendelssohn.
One of the darkest works of Beethoven’s early period, his Op.18, No.4, is a musical dramatisation akin to a Shakespearean tragedy. The characters leap from the page – the tender lovers, the comical satirist, the angst-ridden protagonist – tied together by dramatic musical punctuation. Felix Mendelssohn was a great admirer of Beethoven’s quartet writing and it seems natural therefore to pair the two great composers together. Mendelssohn’s Op.80 Quartet was written in response to his sister Fanny’s death and is charged with a searing pain, a tremendous sense of loss and foreboding. Join Tinalley to celebrate the life and music of Beethoven and those whose lives his music forever altered.
