Beethoven & Benedicte

Cuarteto Quiroga without Benedicte Maurseth

Adjustment programme:

To our great regret, Norwegian violinist Benedicte Maurseth is unable to travel to Belgium due to the stricter corona measures. However, Quarteto Quiroga will certainly play. This concert will not be canceled.

There are still some last tickets available at the box office. Please book in advance and call: +3215 26 23 41 (between 9am and 7pm).


2020 is the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth in Bonn. The famous Spanish Cuarteto Quiroga will perform his Heiliger Dankgesang eines Genesenen an die Gottheit at Musica Divina. Beethoven had to suspend work on his fifteenth string quartet for a while because he was seriously ill, and this middle section is literally praise to God for restoring his health. This particularly heartfelt work is combined with other pieces for Hardanger fiddle and voice, performed by the top Norwegian musician Benedicte Maurseth.

Cuarteto Quiroga:
Aitor Hevia, violin
Cibrán Sierra, violin
Josep Puchades, altviolin
Helena Poggio, cello

Exquisite, precise, perfectly balanced. Interpretatively fresh performances couched in consistently warm hues”
