About This Performance

This adventurous young French quartet brings a quintessentially Gallic élan to everything it plays—from its 2009 Gramophone Recording of the Year to occasional forays into the world of Left Bank jazz. Early and late Beethoven quartets bookend Fauré’s Quartet in E Minor, Op. 121, a compact three-movement work that seems to inhabit its own rarefied world.

Beethoven: Quartet in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1
Fauré: Quartet in E Minor, Op. 121
Beethoven: Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131

This concert is supported by Robert E. Mortensen.
