Four string musicians from Ensemble 360 perform two string quartets by the master of the genre, Beethoven.

Ensemble 360 continues its exploration of the full arch of Beethoven’s string quartets with a pairing drawn from early in his lifelong dedication to the form and what is said to be his own favourite of these works. Inventive, syncopated, eccentric; the first of this pairing is playful, bright and full of longing. An intricate quartet follows, which turns from brooding intensity to monumental power, and left Schubert asking, “After this, what is left for us to write?"
