Does heaven exist?

Does heaven exist? With two quartets on stage at the same time, we come pretty close. The closing concert of the String Quartet Biennale can rightly be called a celebratory concert: the Tetzlaff Quartett and the Signum Quartett demonstrate in Enescu’s famous Octet how the dialogue between string instruments becomes even more intense when you double the four voices.

The Tetzlaff Quartett and the Signum Quartett join forces in Enescu’s special Octet. But the intimacy of the quartet is also highlighted this evening in Sibelius’ Voces Intimae and Mendelssohn’s beloved Second String Quartet. The Tetzlaff musicians take the lead and showcase their unique sound character.
