Beethoven String Quartet No. 5 in A Major, Op. 18 No. 5 – four wines matched to the movements
We are collaborating with The Cambridge String Quartet to present a wonderful evening combining music and wine. Saturday 8 May 2021.
Music was not always about sound for Ludwig van Beethoven. As his ears began to fail him, he also used the senses of sight and touch when he was composing. The Cambridge String Quartet & Grape Britannia invite you to experience Beethoven’s music through another sense: taste! On Saturday 8th May we will be putting on a virtual event combining wine and music. We have paired four of our finest English wines with Beethoven’s String Quartet in A major, Op. 18. No. 5, and will lead listeners through a virtual tasting in dialogue with Beethoven expert, Professor Nicholas Marston. The Cambridge String Quartet will offer a fresh take on this fizzing, theatrical quartet, performing each movement alongside a different wine and offering listeners an enriching experience for all the senses!
Purchase tickets for the music here, if you haven’t already via the Cambridge String Quartet’s website.
The Cambridge String Quartet have played in over 20 countries in 4 continents. They have recorded and broadcast at Abbey Road and Carnegie Hall.
