The New Zealand String Quartet celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012 with a special project, Beethoven!, a complete cycle of Beethoven’s sixteen String Quartets in six programmes.

Part Three, The Late Quartets, completes the Beethoven! cycle with Programmes 5 & 6. These two programmes of the composer’s last completed works include string quartets regarded as some of the greatest and most spiritually profound music ever written. Here Beethoven is mysterious, magical and deeply moving.

The unforgettable programmes of The Late Quartets will be toured to six cities by the New Zealand String Quartet during August and September.
