Quatuor Diotima

24/01/2018 - 24/01/2018

This performance by the Diotima Quartet transports us to Central Europe, particularly to the Czech Republic. Along with a Belgian premiere of the string quartet by contemporary composer Miroslav Srnka, Diotima performs a piece by Leoš Janácek. The composer drew inspiration for his String Quartet no. 1 from Leo Tolstoy's novel The Kreutzer Sonata, which in turn was inspired by Beethoven's symphony of the same name. Diotima closes the programme with Franz Schubert's final string quartet, a monumental piece of great depth and symphonic overtones.
