Beethoven’s Quartet op. 59 No. 1, the first of three quartets dedicated to Prince Razumovsky, already heralds the Romanticism of which Mendelssohn and Schumann were to become celebrated exponents. This performance by the Chiaroscuro Quartet is an opportunity to hear these works performed on period instruments, in collaboration with Kristian Bezuidenhout, one of the finest specialists in historically-informed interpretation.
