Streichquartettfest | Opening concert

Thu 20. 1. 2022

The Minguet Quartet cannot take part in the Streichquartettfest due to a member being infected with corona.

Yes, Wolfgang Rihm also dealt with Schönberg's twelve-tone technique - at the age of 18 in his expressive string quartet No. 1. In contrast, the »Geste zu Vedova« composed 45 years later for the Minguet Quartet reacts to the powerful, vehement approaches of the painter Emilio Vedova. Rihm's emblematic eighth quartet also makes the writing and production of music a topic with paper and sheet noises. The approximately 40-minute final work, described with great understatement as the »Four Studies«, is based on the great clarinet quintet tradition since Mozart.

Please inform yourself about the current Corona regulations and our hygiene regulations before attending the concert.
