Beethoven Opus 18 – Part ONE. 

Australia’s international prize winners, the Affinity Quartet, returns from a period in Europe to perform one of the works from Beethoven’s first foray into string quartets, the Opus 18 PART ONE, for one night only at The Wedge.

A young Beethoven, still in his twenties, defies the logic of The Enlightenment to create a striking new direction for this intimate medium. Compact and ground-breaking, the Opus 18 quartets are often overshadowed by the ten string quartets Beethoven would compose over the next three decades. In these early works Beethoven transforms the legacy of Haydn and Mozart into something fluid, brilliant, and ingenious.

Don’t miss this powerfully crafted, uplifting program performed by one of the most exciting chamber music groups in Australia.
