I love and vengeance

QUARTETTO DI VENEZIA
Andrea Vio, violino
Alberto Battiston, violino
Mario Paladin, viola
Angelo Zanin, violoncello

The Florentine Luigi Cherubini was one of Beethoven’s most well-loved composers. Having achieved global fame as an opera composer, Cherubini was a central figure in the Parisian scene. He also made his own contributions to the genre of quartet music; resting on the grand tradition of Viennese classic music, he experimented with a lighter version that was deft and frivolous, adopting the “concertante” model.

The Florentine Luigi Cherubini was one of Beethoven’s most well-loved composers. Having achieved global fame as an opera composer, Cherubini was a central figure in the Parisian scene. He also made his own contributions to the genre of quartet music; resting on the grand tradition of Viennese classic music, he experimented with a lighter version that was deft and frivolous, adopting the “concertante” model. In this program, the last of Cherubini’s Six Quartets, which he composed between 1814 and 1837, is joined with Beethoven’s Quartet Op. 132,  an important work in Beethoven’s visionary “third period”.
