Borromeo Quartet: Beethoven Cycle, 2021-2022 | Concert 4

NEC: Burnes Hall | Directions

255 St. Botolph St.
Boston, MA
United States

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. 

In addition to this series, Nicholas Kitchen will guide an evening exploration on March 26 in Jordan Hall that will explore expression and expression marks in relation to the manuscripts of Beethoven's op. 90, including movements of Piano Sonata, op. 90, the Seventh and Eighth Symphonies, the "Serioso" Quartet, the last Violin Sonata, and the "Archduke" Trio. This event will be an NEC-sponsored part of the Beethoven Symposium held by the Center for Beethoven Research at Boston University.
