The Borromeo Quartet, NEC's Faculty Quartet-in-Residence since 1992, started a Beethoven Cycle at NEC in 2020 that was cut short by the pandemic. That Cycle will now continue with a new approach. In 2021–2022 there will be six concerts in Burnes Hall, and in each of these concerts the Borromeo will present two Beethoven quartets. Each concert will begin with exactly 10 minutes of exploration of Beethoven's manuscripts of the works on the program, with a special emphasis on his vivid communication of details of expression. This short live discussion will reference a second layer of more in-depth discussion that will be produced simultaneously on the internet.
This performance is open to in-person audiences, and can also be viewed below via livestream.
BEETHOVEN: Op. 95
BEETHOVEN: Op. 135
Discussion: “Irony and Humor–Things are not what they seem”
