The Lir Quartet opens this celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

There will be two performances on the day, the first at 12.30pm, the second at 3pm.

Introduced by Evelyn Grant

Originally founded for Barry Douglas’ 2017 Clandeboye Festival, this will be the Lir’s fifth tour for the Foundation. The F major quartet Op.18, No.1, written when Beethoven was in his late twenties, is full of brilliance and energy, the passionate slow movement depicts the tragic tomb scene from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The majestic, expansive E flat major quartet Op.127 from 1825 is the first of the five quartets Beethoven wrote in the last years of his life. The ending remains one of the most magical and uplifting moments in music.
