Four legendary Stradivariuses on stage with Quartetto di Cremona 

Since its formation in 2000, the Quartetto di Cremona has established itself as one of Europe’s leading string quartets. Festivals and concert halls in America, Asia and Europe have all been visited by the four musicians, and radio and TV stations in just as many countries have presented their repertoire, one which ranges from early Haydn quartets to the very latest music.

2017 proved to be a special year for the quartet, which completed its CD issues of Beethoven’s collected string quartets. And last September, the members of the quartet took over four legendary Stadivariuses, lent them by the Japanese Nippon Music Foundation. The instruments form a unique quartet in themselves and are referred to as the Paganini quartet, after the Italian violin virtuoso who in the 19th century collected the four gems together for the first time.

Quartetto di Cremona has compiled the programme on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy’s death, who found a considerable amount of his inspiration in Javanese gamelan music. But the quartet will also play music by Puccini and Debussy.

Claude Debussy: Strygekvartet i g-mol

Ludwig van Beethoven: Strygekvartet i a-mol nr. 15, opus 132 

The concert will finish around 22.00.
