Juilliard Quartet

The Boston Globe described the Juilliard Quartet as ‘the most important American quartet in history.’ This legendary ensemble comes to the Sheldonian Theatre for a programme anchored by the string quartet Beethoven considered his greatest of all. Structurally unique, unbearably profound yet alive with humanity, Beethoven’s Op. 131 is a work that, for the music historian Harvey Sachs, ‘seems to traverse all human experience.’ Even in the context of the scintillating quartet by Ravel and the world premiere by Jörg Widmann, this score for four musicians will provide living proof that the immense power of Beethoven’s music remains undimmed.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.40

Tickets: £40 £30 £20 £12
