The final masterworks of a titan of classical music

BEETHOVEN String Quartet No 16 in F major Op 135
HAYDN String Quartet in D major Op20 No4
BEETHOVEN String Quartet No 15 in A minor Op 132

Beethoven’s remarkable late string quartets are widely considered to be among the finest works written for
the ensemble. A thrilling programme exploring some of the last pieces the composer ever penned, showcasing romantic flair and technical brilliance. These works are complemented by the elegance of Haydn, a towering early influence of Beethoven.

The Doric String Quartet brings an elegance and intimacy both to the Classical canon and new music and as they go into their 25th anniversary this season, the players continue to deepen their interpretations and win fans across the world. Having performed cycles of Haydn, Mendelssohn, Britten and Bartók at famous venues around the world, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, this season they turn their attention to Beethoven, embarking on a recording project for Chandos, with the first instalment out this year, and culminating in 2026–27 with the 200th anniversary of the composer’s death.
