Great quartets written during three different periods – that would be a possible, brief characterisation of the dramaturgy of this concert, which will be held on the lovely premises of the Convent of Saint Agnes. Besides High Classicism represented by one of Mozart’s late quartets dedicated to the King of Prussia, who is said to have been an excellent cellist, there will be a performance of the quartet from Dvořák’s American period, regarded as one of the most famous works of the quartet literature. Representing the modern era will be Béla Bartók’s last quartet. The Belcea Quartet, a legendary ensemble from London, will take on this demanding programme with its typical perfectionism.
