Not only will 2020 be a year of exploration for the Brodsky Quartet, with performances and collaborations across the globe, but one celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary as the quartet showcase their position as specialists in the performance of the composer’s late quartets.
January will see the Brodsky Quartet begin a series of five ‘Rush-Hour ’ performances at Kings Place, where they hold the prestigious position of Artists in Residence, with programmes not only celebrating Beethoven’s later compositions, but also the works of more contemporary composers such as Tanaka, and fellow Hazard Chase artist, Henning Kraggerud. If you would like to find out more and book your tickets, please click HERE.
Accompanying this busy spring season is the highly anticipated, January release, of the Brodsky Quartet’s recordings of Beethoven’s ‘Late String Quartets’, on the Chandos Records label. Adding to their vast discography, the Brodsky Quartet exhibit not only their versatility, but also their expertise, with a CD release that should not be missed.
Looking ahead to March, the quartet will be returning to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to lead their second session of intensive masterclasses and coaching sessions for the Beethoven Education Project. The Brodsky Quartet’s experience in both the study and performance of Beethoven’s works will come to the fore, as they join students from the RCS and schools across the region to showcase the hard work and partnership developed, in six concerts as part of the Rosin Chamber Weekend.
