The Second Generation of the Quartet: Beethoven and Schubert

Luis Gago presenta el concierto "History of the Quartet: Vienna, 1800–1830"

In a few short years, the quartet became the backbone of modern musical creation, and early-nineteenth century Vienna witnessed how Beethoven and Schubert took the genre to its formal and expressive limits. In this presentation, Luis Gago spells out certain compositional features that question the Classical ideal of the quartet as a conversation between four reasonable people and presents the keys to listening to Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 95, the “Serioso” and Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, D 810, “Death and the Maiden”.
