Beethoven | Maestro | Cromwell

October 2020

This year we’re celebrating a massive composer with a massive tour. The 2020 National Tour brings Beethoven back on his 250th birthday, travelling throughout New Zealand between June and October. Written throughout his life, Beethoven’s string quartets remain, like his symphonies, some of the most remarkable classical music ever composed. Don’t miss this extraordinary music on tour. 

Reset your expectations at each of these exceptional and individual quartets. Prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist. Acclaimed world-wide for our performances of Beethoven’s music, join us for an unforgettable programme of Beethoven’s String Quartets. Beethoven | Maestro unites the playful with the profound in music that glows in the sun and resounds from clifftops.
