Warner Classics and Erato have announced the release of the French-based Quatuor Ébène’s new 7-CD set: ‘Beethoven Around The World: The Complete String Quartets.’
The collection features Beethoven’s 16 Complete String Quartets – plus the ‘Grosse Fuge’.
“We were invited by Carnegie Hall in New York to perform the complete cycle in concert for Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary – so we have dedicated a lot of our work from 2016 to 2020 to preparing Beethoven …” violinist Pierre Colombet has told The Violin Channel.
“This huge amount of work to learn the bible of all quartets was a true odyssey – and one of the deepest experiences we’ve ever had,” he has said.
