Beethoven’s B-flat-major quartet shattered tradition with six movements, including the profoundly beautiful Cavatina. The original ending, the Grosse Fuge, was deemed too momentous for an already overpowering work and now stands alone in the repertoire. The “indispensable” Emerson String Quartet (Newsday) performs both pieces along with Shostakovich’s Thirteenth Quartet, a surreal piece in which simplicity becomes sonically extraordinary.
Additional Details: Program Notes
An extraordinary fusion of experience and authority with audacity and freshness.
This new group—Mr. Watkins alongside the violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, and the violist Lawrence Dutton—complemented their customary power, finesse and unanimity with a fresh, palpable vigor at Tully, and it was electrifying.
