Cancelled – BBN: Night Music

St Giles’ Church, Camberwell Camberwell Church Street, Camberwell, London

Solem Quartet launch Beethoven Bartók Now with Part 1, BBN: Night Music.
Aaron Parker commission
Bartók Quartet no. 5
Beethoven Quartet no. 13, op. 130 (revised ending)
Lonely melodies supported by eerie dissonances punctuated with sounds of the nature characterise Bartók’s ‘night music’ style. Beethoven’s op. 130, the second of the late quartets, contains an extraordinary palette of dark and light in six remarkable movements. Aaron Parker has written a spell-binding new work featuring references to Bartók’s ‘night music’, and a depth of harmonic expression found so richly in Beethoven’s op. 130. Aaron’s work unites the different worlds of these giants, and raises something new.
