String quartet with a difference

Asasello Quartett
Rostislav Kozhevnikov (Violin)
Barbara Streil (Violin)
Justyna Śliwa (Viola)
Teemu Myöhänen (Cello)

Ludwig van Beethoven:
String quartet no. 12 in E-flat major, op. 127 (‘Galitzin Quartet I’)

Márton Illés:
String quartet (world première, commissioned by Asasello Quartett)

Arnold Schönberg:
String quartet no. 1 in D minor, op. 7


The Asasello Quartet likes to get close to their audience. The centrepiece of their Beethovenfest recital is the première of a new work composed specifically for them by Márton Illés, a student of Wolfgang Rihm who was born in Budapest in 1975. Also on the programme is Beethoven’s E-flat major Quartet of 1824, a work pointing far into the future. Finally, the evening ends with Schoenberg’s monumental op. 7, a 45-minute quartet in a single movement modelled, the composer tells us, on Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’. This recital opens the string quartet weekend of the 2017 Beethovenfest.
