Beethoven String Quartet no. 13 in B-flat major (with Große Fuge)
Ligeti String Quartet no. 2
Thomas Simaku con-ri-sonanza

Beethoven’s late quartets are among the composer’s most enigmatic, profound and personal works. Taking the listener on a journey across a full spectrum of emotions, the composer’s six-movement quartet in B-flat, op. 130, heard here with the epic Große Fuge as Beethoven originally intended, is one of the most extraordinary and complex pieces in all classical music. The height of modernism in its time, Beethoven’s masterpiece is paired with one of the most significant chamber works from the second half of the twentieth century, as we celebrate Ligeti’s 100th anniversary, and acclaimed British pianist Joseph Houston joins Quatuor Diotima for York-based composer Thomas Simaku’s piano quintet, con-ri-sonanza.
