Franz Schubert
String Quartet in E-flat major D 87
Guillaume Connesson
Les instants retrouvés for String Quartet
Claude Debussy
String Quartet in G minor Op. 10

As a young man, Franz Schubert was a prolific composer of string quartets. He performed most of these early works himself with his father and brothers—presumably also including his 1813 Quartet in E-flat major, which opens the Belcea Quartet’s program. It is followed by Les instants retrouvés, written for the ensemble by French composer Guillaume Connesson in 2023, and Claude Debussy’s String Quartet of 1892.

The Belcea Quartet is grateful to Suyeon Kang for taking over the part of second violin for this concert, replacing Axel Schrader.

Sadly, due to a death in the family of one of the quartet members, the performance has to be canceled at very short notice. Ticket holders will receive an automatic refund to their customer account. If you would prefer a refund to your bank account, please contact us at and provide the transaction number (printed on the top right of your ticket) and your IBAN or bank account details.
Thank you for your understanding.
