Mozart, Beethoven & Szymanowski

Mozart, Beethoven & Szymanowski


 

Allegri String Quartet

Mozart: Quartet in C major K465 'Dissonance'

Szymanowski: Quartet no 2

Beethoven: Quartet op 127

Founded in 1953 and over the years refreshed with the very best musicians, the Allegri has become an integral part of British musical life. Programmed are two of the greatest quartets in the repertoire, sandwiching a lesser known masterpiece of the 20th century.

Mozart's Dissonance quartet, one of six dedicated to Haydn, is, after the brief 'dissonant' introduction, one of his most cheerful chamber works. Szymanowski's Second Quartet is a personal summing-up by a still underestimated master: the first of the three movements is highly impressionistic and the last two derived from Polish folk music. Beethoven' opus 127 is the first of his celebrated late quartets, a work of significance not only within that context but also in the ongoing development of the quartet oeuvre.

Duration: 2 hours with interval
