TINALLEY STRING QUARTET WITH JOHN BELL

Sunday 5 April 2020  |  2:30PM


BEETHOVENíS LETTERS

Voted Australiaís favourite composer in the ABCís Classic 100 survey by nearly 130,000 people, Beethoven remains classical musicís most iconic revolutionary. Beneath the rigour of his string quartets lies a humanism embodying the ideals of fraternity, enlightenment and democracy. While this music is often an affirmation of resilience, his letters reveal an inner life tortured by circumstance.

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethovenís birth, the Tinalley String Quartet take us through some of the most enduring chamber music ever written, while Shakespearean actor John Bell weaves a narrative from eighteen of Beethovenís letters, culminating with the devastating Heiligenstadt Testament.

Complimentary afternoon tea will be served after the performance.
