Intermission

Schubert: Quartet in G Major, D. 887

“The Belceas still play like a young quartet, seizing the music’s energy, shocking us out of our seats with every fortissimo” (The Guardian). One of the leading string quartets of its generation, the London-based foursome presents a program featuring classic quartets by Schubert. Between these early and late Schubert masterpieces, the group offers Shostakovich’s eighth quartet, his most direct in form and expression and also the most popular of his quartets.
