Leipzig String Quartet Concert


About

The Leipziger Streichquartett, or Leipzig String Quartet was founded in 1988, and is now widely acclaimed as one of the most exciting string quartets on the international chamber music scene: The Neue Züricher Zeitung has described the ensemble as "one of the towering and most versatile quartets of our time" and The New York Times wrote "if there is a Leipzig sound, this is it!". With a broad repertory that includes the complete outputs of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Brahms, as well as works contemporary composers (about 300 works by nearly 100 composers). Their more than sixty CDs have been acclaimed by music critics and have earned many distinctions: numerous attributions of the German Record Critics Prize, Diapason d'Or, two nominations for the Cannes Classical Award, and Echo Prizes in 1999 and 2000, and the American Indie Award in 1999, 2000, 2003, 2008 and 2012. When the quartet was founded in 1988, three of its members were first-chair instrumentalists in the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig. Soon thereafter their artistic endeavors brought them international prizes at the ARD Competition in Munich in 1991. Concert tours have since taken the Leipzig String Quartet to more than forty-five countries around the globe. The ensemble is also regularly invited to perform at festivals throughout the world. As the first chamber music ensemble appears in the Moutian View Theater Classical Music Season, the Leipzig String Quartet will perform a program of Beethoven's selected string quartet pieces, from Beethoven’s earliest forays into the string quartet form with his Op. 18, as well as the "late Beethoven" expressions offered in the Grosse Fugue.
