The Leonkoro Quartet plays Beethoven, Sjostakovitsj en Webern
The young German Leonkoro Quartet is making headway. In recent years, the musicians have been very successful at various important competitions. Now they are visiting the Recital Hall for the first time with music by Webern, Shostakovich and Beethoven.
'The Leonkoro Quartet has an enormous stage presence, glows for the music, takes all risks and has an astonishing ability to empathize with the sound world of each piece,' wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about the young German foursome. An important composer such as Wolfgang Rihm also made no secret of his admiration and spoke of wonderful quartet playing. The Leonkoros put themselves in the spotlight loud and clear after winning several prizes at important competitions. The Berlin-based quartet is a guest in the Kleine Zaal for the first time.
Beethoven, Shostakovich and Webern
Beethoven is close to the hearts of the Leonkoros. With the third quartet from the Razumovski series, the musicians won the Wigmore Hall competition in London in 2022. Beethoven's First Quartet for Count Razumovski, which will be on the music stands tonight, shares the key of F major with Shostakovich's Third String Quartet . The energetic use of the cello by Beethoven and Shostakovich's hushed coda are some of the highlights with which these two musical storytellers hold the listener in their grip. Webern's late romantic Langsamer Satz opens this concert.
