Program

DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH: String Quartet no. 8 in C minor, op. 110 (1960) 25 min.
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: String Quartet no. 15 in A minor, op. 132 (1825) 45 min.

In this final concert of the Biennial, the Cuarteto Casals takes us on a journey through European musical history.

References and self-references ‚Äďsuch as the musical signature DSCH, quotations from his own works, and revolutionary songs‚Äď permeate Dmitri Shostakovich's Quartet No. 8, always with the ambiguity and distance that characterise chamber music, below the radar of the Stalinist regime. In a deliberate breaking of boundaries, Beethoven wrote Quartet No. 15 in five movements rather than the usual four, with the third movement constituting almost an entire quartet in itself.
