‘Feeling New Strength’ | String Quartets and the Voice

Dynamic ensemble The Kreutzer Quartet perform Beethoven’s fifteenth string quartet, whose lively middle section ‘Neue Kraft fuehlend’ (feeling new strength) is set against music that echoes a solemn religious song. In this innovative concert, The Kreutzer join forces with singers from the Oxford University Faculty of Music, led by renowned tenor James Gilchrist. Their programme explores more contrasts, performing songs accompanied by string quartet, and string quartets inspired by songs.
