Solem Lates: Beethoven Bartók Now

Solem Quartet

The Solem Quartet is excited to present its new Solem Lates project, Beethoven Bartók Now, an ambitious six-part series running from December 2020 until March 2023.

Beethoven Bartók Now will see the Solem Quartet collaborate with leading young composers of today to perform commissioned new works and present the historic works of Beethoven and Bartók in a new light, as well as producing a wealth of digital content and educational activity.

The launch concert, Part I: Night Music, will take place on Thursday 17th December at St Giles’ Church, Camberwell, at 7:00pm. This concert will place Beethoven’s op. 130 Quartet and Bartók’s Quartet no. 5 alongside music by Aaron Parker, who will explore the magic and mystery of Bartok’s ‘night music’ style via a tapestry of sound created by the string quartet and added electronics.
