‘I’ve always loved chamber music, and love it more and more’, says violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter. ‘No other music has such intimacy, allows so much spontaneity and requires such quick reflexes.’ For Mutter and the Principal members of the LPO, the opportunity to play Beethoven’s chamber music is a profound and very personal musical pleasure; but tonight at Queen Elizabeth Hall it’s one that we’re able to share. Two Beethoven masterpieces – his playful early String Trio and his kaleidoscopic ‘Harp’ Quartet of 1809 – frame a new commission by Jörg Widmann, a composer who, like Beethoven, remakes tradition even as he challenges it.
