The 2020 National Tour brings Beethoven back on his 250th birthday, travelling throughout New Zealand between June and October. Rejoice in these charismatic and distinctive works, played heart and soul by the NZSQ. 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.

Acclaimed world-wide for their performances of Beethoven’s music, join the NZSQ for an unforgettable programme. Prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist. Beethoven | Universal brings you music that reaches ambitiously from the threshold of a new century to the symphonic spaciousness of the composer’s harmonic language.
