The Aris Quartet at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

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.

 

You can rewatch the concert stream here!



New CD release

Two years after their last CD, the Aris Quartett focuses on Johannes Brahms with their fifth production.

Included are two key works of the chamber music literature of the 19th century: The String Quartet in C minor, dating from the early period of maturity, is characterized by how the composer dealt with personal losses and how he overcame great doubts. The Clarinet Quintet is one of Brahms' last works ever. A swan song to his oeuvre, perhaps even to Romanticism in general.

Chamber music partner of the quartet is the clarinettist Thorsten Johanns.

 

The recording is a co-production of Deutschlandfunk and BBC Radio 3 and will be released by Genuin Classics.

The CD will be available from October 02, 2020, for example on amazon.com oder jpc.de
