About

Alexander Marks violin
Elizabeth Lamberton violin
Robert Shepley viola
Gethyn Jones cello, host and lecturer

Join us this season for Discover: Beethoven String Quartets featuring cellist Gethyn Jones and the Ensemble of St Luke's, made up of musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

One of the three 'Razumovsky' quartets, this work was composed during Beethoven's middle period which was, like all of his life, a time of intense highs and lows. There was an especially striking contrast between his impressive professional success and his rapidly deteriorating health. He put all of his life experience into his work, successfully channelling his struggles and tribulations into his music.

This event will feature a 45-minute lecture/demonstration followed by a performance of the string quartet, with a short break in between.
