One of Romania's reference quartets, the Gaudeamus Quartet crowned its 35th anniversary with an impressive professional achievement!

A Musical Challenge - The complete string quartet by Ludwig van Beethoven is successfully added to the portfolio of the four musicians. Thus, on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021, the quartet invites you to the Beethoven Recital. The last of the Integral dedicated to the great titan, in the program being found the Quartet op. 130 in B flat major and Quartet op. 133 in B flat major "Great Flight".

The year 2020, the year that marked the # 250yearssinceBeethovenwasborn, stimulated musicians from all over the world, bringing by interpretation the well-known works, but also less known and sung on stage, offering them to the general public. Even in the conditions of the sanitary crisis we are all going through, because the music has not stopped. He continued from the Virtual Room.

Thus, under the ages of the #At your home philarmoniccampaign, the Brasov Philharmonic Quartet, Gaudeamus Quartet (Lucia Neagoe - violin I, Raluca Irimia - violin II, Leona Varvarichi - viola and Ștefan Neagoe - cello) transmitted, in a number of 8 recitals, Integral of the String Quartets of the great composer.

"To make such an interpretation is different. In the quartets, Beethoven made a kind of laboratory that he could not afford in an orchestra. In the Symphonies he kept the structure clear, in the quartets he experimented from 4 parts to 6 or even 7 parts, with different moods, with different tempo changes, which chamber music does not allow so easily. After Beethoven, very few dared to compose such works, such as string quartets.

Beethoven's string quartets are difficult. It is even known that, in the world, very few quartets have succeeded in this. "(Ștefan Neagoe)

Beethoven is without a doubt the best known composer of classical music. It is no wonder, then, that in 2020, on the 250th anniversary of his birth, the great musician is celebrated all over the world. But what remains in the musical history of Brașov is the fact that in the year that celebrated the 250th anniversary of the birth of the great composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, Gaudeamus Quartet is the only quartet in Romania that performed the Integral String Quartet, thus adding more an exceptional professional reference in the list of artists who form today the Brașov Philharmonic Quartet.
