Beethoven: String Quartet No. 10 in E flat major (Harp), Op. 74
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132

The members of the quartet: Péter Mező, Csongor Veér – violin, Péter Kondor – viola, Mátyás Ölveti – cello

Since its foundation in 2001, Accord Quartet has developed a repertoire diverse in genres and styles; in addition to the classical chamber music literature, the ensemble likes to test itself in a wide range of forms, from experimental opera to lighter pieces. However, the string quartet is best known to the general public for its commitment to modern music, because they have premiered a host of works that were written specifically for them.
At the Budapest Spring Festival they celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a classical programme, though it must be noted that the two quartets to be performed were once considered pieces that pushed the envelope of the genre. Still equally challenging for performers and audiences alike, these compositions require a truly inventive performance for their non-conventional quality and immutably avant-garde character to shine.

This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre.
