Borromeo String Quartet with Nicholas Cords, viola [CONCERT]

Borromeo String Quartet with Nicholas Cords, viola [CONCERT] Online

Explore musical relationships in Beethoven’s late works with the preeminent Borromeo String Quartet, featuring his op. 130 string quartet and the legendary Grosse Fuge, labelled by Stravinsky as “an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever.” Renowned violist Nicholas Cords joins the quartet for a performance of Beethoven’s 8th symphony in transcription. Hailed for its passionate and fearless performances, the Borromeo carries listeners through extremes of expression, from intimate to triumphant, playing monumental works to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
