This year, the festival will be celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, and will focus closely on exploring the performers’ relationships with the music they play.
The Solems will be performing Beethoven’s Quartet no. 13 in B flat major, op. 130, and the streamed concert will also feature a discussion of the piece with quartet members Amy Tress, William Newell, Stephen Upshaw and Stephanie Tress — use this link to book tickets now.
Festival director Anthony Wilkinson looks forward to this opportunity of taking a closer look at the repertoire by presenting a conversation with the performers alongside their concerts:
I’ve asked our performers to develop what I call ‘recitals with attitude’, where we get closer to the performer’s heart and soul as they delve into the spirit of these great masterpieces.
Tickets for the festival are now on sale and can be purchased via the festival’s listing page.
Individual concert tickets are just £10, allowing the ticket-holder to stream the concert at any time during a 48-hour window. There are also two levels of season pass on offer, which give access to all the events for up to a month after the festival — more information about these can be found on the festival website.
The festival runs from 13th to 22nd November, and the Solem Quartet’s recital will be available to ticket-holders from 7:30pm on Friday 20th November until 9:00pm on Sunday 22nd November.
