Two young string quartets and a colossal cycle: Beethoven’s six late quartets in three concerts, all in one day. At every concert, the Eliot Quartett from Frankfurt plays one opus, while the Pacific Quartet Vienna is in charge of the other one. This way, Opus 127 and 132 meet, as do the grand Opus 131 quartet in C-flat minor and the cheerful Opus 135 quartet in F major, and finally, Opus 130 and the “Great Fugue” as its original finale. A common theme in various transformations runs like a thread through all six compositions … You can book every concert individually or get tickets for the entire series. Between the concerts, culinary intermezzi and other treats fill the free time.
The Beethoven Day consists of three concerts and two free times. All elements can be booked individually. The discounted combined price for two or three concerts can only be booked directly at the ticket office.
In the free times between the concerts you can enjoy a picnic box (EUR 15) in the grounds of Schloss Eggenberg, visit the newly set “Alte Galerie” in the castle (admission free), an introduction under trees (free admission, but take a reservation) or in the free time 2 you can enjoy a four-course menu (EUR 38) in the garden foyer of the Helmut List Halle. The transfer to the Helmut List Halle is included in the menu price.
Vouchers for the picnic box and the quartet menu can be purchased online or at the ticket office until one day before the show. Depending on availability, ticket cards for the introduction are also available on the performance day.
