The World Changed

Brodsky Quartet: Shostakovich Quartet Cycle III

  • 17 October 2014 From 7pm

Shostakovich
String Quartet No 6 in G
String Quartet No 8 in C minor
String Quartet No 7 in F sharp minor
String Quartet No 9 in E flat

This is a journey like no other in music. Dmitri Shostakovich remains one of the towering figures of 20th century music. His fifteen string quartets are an intensely personal series of musical utterances, as intimate as those penned by Beethoven in his own immortal cycle. They are also incredibly powerful, inhabiting dramatic landscapes that have the power to transfix audiences. They run from one emotional extreme to another, alternating tragedy with wit, sublimity with banality, light heartedness with elemental darkness. The Brodsky Quartet performs the complete quartet cycle across a series of five special concerts at St George’s and special locations in the City. You can choose to follow the entire cycle or just individual concerts. The cycle culminates in a dramatic performance in near darkness of the Fifteenth Quartet at St George’s Bristol.
