Schubert meets Beethoven at the Glyptotek

/ 03. October 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This is an opportunity to hear the Poseidon Quartet, one of the best string quartets in Scandinavia, playing masterpieces by Beethoven and Schubert.

Though both these composers lived in Vienna in the early 19th century, we do not know whether they ever met. With his late string quartets, Beethoven was way ahead of his time, a source of inspiration to musicians and composers right up to the present day. Schubert, who was 27 years younger, a great admirer of Beethoven, was heavily influenced by the musical pioneer, but developed his own very personal quartet style, which really came into its own in his last three string quartets.

Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde’ Quartet was composed in Vienna in 1824, and Beethoven’s last string quartet (opus 135) was composed in Vienna in 1826.
