Beethoven, Steve MacKey and Elgar

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom

Brentano String Quartet

Steven Mackey’s fascination with movement and transformation in music surfaces in One Red Rose, his new work for the Brentano String Quartet, written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The American composer’s score here stands as a bridge between the introspection of Beethoven’s earliest string quartet, completed in January 1799, and Elgar’s elegiac E minor quartet, heard for the first time at Wigmore Hall in 1919.
