“Exploring the musical richness concealed in the works of Beethoven is not a finite task, but the most fascinating thing about his music is that it speaks so directly to us as human beings. He seems to be inspired first and foremost by man’s aspiration to be free, his insatiable desire to push back boundaries and to learn the truth about himself at the same time.” This is how the musicians of the Belcea Quartet describe their recording journey through the complete Beethoven quartets (Alpha). They will revisit this monumental corpus this season in a series of six Sunday concerts. This is the sixth and final concert of the complete works and this exploration of a unique corpus draws to a fitting close with opus 130, and the Grosse Fugue opus 133, the last great examples of the conflict between spirit and matter which haunted the musician all his life.
