One of the most brilliant works in the quartet literature, an exciting new composition based on it, and a virtuoso award-winning ensemble: the Aris Quartet's GENUIN CD Attacca bursts with energy from the very first moment.
Highly acclaimed with awards such as "Echo Rising Stars" 2019/2020, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and "BBC New Generations Artists" 2018-2020, the Aris Quartet juxtaposes Beethoven's "Russian" Quartet Op. 59, No. 1, with Gerald Resch's String Quartet No. 3.
Gerald Resch's intention was to build a kind of "adjacent property" to Beethoven. The Aris Quartet vividly brings out both the connections and differences with its nuanced playing.
ECHO – this is the name of the network set up by Europe's leading concert halls, a cooperation that aims to work on joint initiatives and a mutual exchange of ideas. Every year the 22 members nominate six outstanding young artists and send them off on a large-scale tour.
The current »Rising Stars« appear at the Elbphilharmonie every year in the space of a week. Concerts cannot be given in front of a large audience this time round, but everyone can still enjoy the festival: the concerts are being transferred to the internet, and can be watched as a stream, starting on Tuesday 26 January at 20.30 with the Aris Quartett.
Each stream starts with a short talk from the artist, followed by the actual concert.
