BBN: Night Music
1st July 2021 | 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Solem Quartet present the first part of their groundbreaking series Beethoven Bartók Now: Night Music, featuring new work by Aaron Parker.
Beethoven Quartet no. 13 op. 130 | Bartók Quartet no. 5 | Aaron Parker tuóretu
Lonely melodies supported by eerie dissonances punctuated with sounds of the nature characterise Bartók’s ‘night music’ style. Beethoven’s op. 130, the second of the late Quartets, contains an extraordinary palette of darkness and light in six remarkable movements. Aaron Parker has written a spell-binding new work featuring references to Bartok’s ‘night music’, and a depth of harmonic expression found so richly in Beethoven’s 130. Aaron’s work unites the different worlds of these giants; and raises something new.
