Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate the release of The Belcea Quartet's complete Brahms quartets, Alpha is reissuing the ensemble's recording of the complete Beethoven quartets. The ensemble wrote of this 8-disc project: "Beethoven's music has been at the center of our life as a quartet from our very first rehearsal... These sixteen quartets written some two hundred years ago form one of the most complete and powerful musical statements ever made. The completeness lies in their unprecedented intensity and in the astonishing development that can be traced between the early and the late works." The Belcea Quartet has been described as "a world-class ensemble," (The Guardian). Made up of violinists Corina Belcea and Axel Schacher, violist Krzysztof Chorzelski, and cellist Antoine Lederlin, the group performs a diverse repertoire with an open-minded approach to interpretation. The group has an impressive discography, and has appeared on stages across the globe as well as television broadcasts and music festivals.
