'Beethoven for a Later Age': Edward Dusinberre and James Jolly

"He re-invented the dialogue between the instruments"

When asked about the meaning of the late string quartets Beethoven famously remarked 'Oh those are not for you, they are for a later age.' Has that later age arrived? In a talk illustrated by musical excerpts both recorded and live, the leader of the Takács Quartet Edward Dusinberre discusses the significance and challenge of these extraordinary pieces of music with editor-in-chief of Gramophone James Jolly.

Presented in association with Gramophone and EFG International.
