Beethoven String Quartet No. 8 in E minor, Op. 59 No. 2 "Rasumovsky"

To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, the Stradivari Quartet presents two of the celebrated German composer’s string quartets. No. 11, nicknamed “Serioso”, was never intended for public performance; like No. 8, it was simply so ahead of its time. Surrounded by these classics is Eight Colors by the prolific contemporary Chinese composer, Tan Dun, eight pieces of concentrated drama and ritual.
