About the show

Schubert Quartettsatz in C minor, D 703
Barber Adagio from Quartet Op 11
Beethoven String Quartet Op 135
Shostakovich String Quartet No 5 in B flat major, Op 92

The Brodskys have literally crossed all bridges and turned every corner since 1972 when the Quartet was formed. No repertoire has escaped their attention and mastery of it, and their renewal year on year has maintained their position as one of the most widely sought after of all Quartets. Their massive discography that includes working famously with Elvis Costello and music by John Joubert, Zemlinsky, Janacek, Beethoven, Elgar, Brahms, Schönberg to name only a few shows their appetite for universal appeal is undimmed.  The Brodsky’s complete cycle of Shostakovich though competes at the highest level, rivalling those of the Emerson and Fitzwilliam quartets. His 4th quartet in this programme is an inspired partner to Beethoven’s late and enigmatic masterpiece.
