2018 Bath Mozartfest - Beethoven And The Belcea Quartet20181207

Sarah Walker presents a selection of music from the 2018 Bath Mozartfest. Beethoven composed his Quartet in B flat major Op 130 during the final years of Beethoven’s life. This work originally featured his 'Grosse Fugue' as the climatic movement. However, the composer's friends found the music too demanding and persuaded Beethoven to provide an alternative finale. This performance by the Belcea Quartet restores the work to Beethoven's original vision. This is followed by the pianist Angela Hewitt performing Ravel's iconic Pavane.

Sarah Walker presents a selection of music from the 2018 Bath Mozartfest. To begin, London Winds perform Mozart’s Serenade K375. A work that was premiered at the house of the sister-in-law of the Imperial Court Painter, where influential officials from the Viennese court would circulate. This is followed by the Belcea Quartet performing Janacek’s Intimate Letters. It is one of the last works the Moravian composer wrote, and a work which sprang from his feelings of unrequited love.
