Beethoven’s ‘Harp’ Quartet was considered daring in its use of pizzicato, however, this technique was in use in the early baroque, particularly liked by Biber, a lesser known, but characterful composer working in Salzburg.

String Quartet No 16 was Beethoven’s last major work and a deservedly popular chamber piece. This intimate music capture’s the question and answer of ‘Must it be?’ written into the score by the composer.

The Richter Ensemble is a new chamber music initiative founded by internationally renowned violinist and director Rodolfo Richter. Primarily a string quartet, the ensemble took root in 2015 on tour in Berlin with the baroque orchestra B’Rock and includes musicians from three continents.
