  1. String Quartet in B flat, 'Grosse Fuge' Op 133 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. Quintet for piano and strings in G minor Op 57 - Dmitry Shostakovich
  3. String Quartet No 2 in G Op 18 No 2 - Ludwig van Beethoven

Tonight's concert also includes a new work by Carmen Ho entitled: The way it is, for string quartet, world premiere, commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society

An evening of music that takes us to the extremes of Beethoven’s character. The Grosse Fuge is celebrated for its dramatic nature – Stravinsky declared it to be “an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever” – while the early Quartet in G is rich in wit and humour. These works are complemented by Shostakovich’s popular Quintet, featuring its own remarkable fugue, and a short new string quartet by outstanding young composer Carmen Ho.

This is the second concert in our Beethoven 250 series, a celebration of the composer’s anniversary. Performances by Ensemble 360 will include all 16 of his monumental quartets alongside many of his other chamber works; the series continues through 2020 and into spring 2021.
