Lassus (D’hoe) – Beethoven – Shostakovich – Schnittke

October 20, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

€20

In his Third String Quartet, the Russian Schnittke plays a game with musical history.

As if he wanted to stir up his own inspiration through the past, he unabashedly borrows from Lassus, Beethoven and Shostakovich. Not out of laziness, but out of pure love, in an attempt to bring pieces of history together in one elongated moment of depth.

First you get to hear the three “inspirations,” then Schnittke’s own quartet. Pieter Bergé and the BiSS Quartet will introduce this concert with a short lecture-recital: once you have mastered Schnittke’s tricks and techniques, listening becomes child’s play.
