Werther Quartet

  • This event has passed.

« I love Mozart tenderly but I venerate Beethoven like a god who is always far away and will never be one of us”. With these words, Schumann began to compose his string quartets op. 41, in a spirit of emulation rather than imitation of the last 5 wonderful Beethoven quartets.  This spirit permeates all of Schumann’s compositions as he searched for a new poetry to be able to mirror his romantic ideals, but which had its foundations in tradition; a poetry that 50 years later, even Gustav Mahler would have taken on in his quest to exalt the Beethoven symphonic idea.

The programme, therefore, does not want to only follow a poetic path but it also wants to represent the evolution of the heroic ideal – ever present in Beethoven times – as a cornerstone of romantic poetry right up to the titanic achievements of “Mahler’s music”.
