Introduction: 7:00 pm


The members of the Minguet Quartett, founded in 1988, named their ensemble after the Spanish writer, philosopher and publisher Pablo Minguet e Yrol, who – as a music mediator avant la lettre – advocated in the 18th century that the fine arts, cultivated until then primarily in court circles, be disseminated across all levels of society. The work of the man whom the ensemble is named after is both an artistic commitment and a matter of the heart to the Minguet Quartett, one of the most renowned chamber music string groups of the younger generation.

This can be seen in the quartet’s broad-ranging repertoire, comprising contemporary compositions as well as musical works of previous centuries that have fallen into oblivion. And thus one can await with interest the programme the ensemble will perform in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonie. In addition to classics of the string quartet literature like Joseph Haydn’s String Quartet op. 76 No. 5 dedicated to his patron Count Joseph Erdödy and Johannes Brahms’s first contribution to the genre, the Minguet Quartett will interpret works by Josef Suk, Czech composer and violin virtuoso who died in 1935, also Antonín Dvořák’s son-in-law, and Peter Ruzicka’s Second String Quartet Fragment, consisting of five musical “epigrams”. The Minguet Quartett’s concert will conclude with a string quartet arrangement of Gustav Mahler’s Rückert-Lied “I am lost to the world”.
