Quatuor Van Kuijk

Arles - Musique classique - Sunday 21 November 2021 between 3 pm and 5 pm.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Quartet op. 18 No. 6

Gabriel Fauré : Quartet

Felix Mendelssohn: Quartet op. 80

The Van Kuijk Quartet concludes its complete set of Felix Mendelssohn's quartets with La Belle Saison. The series ends with a poignant sixth and final work, written a few weeks after the death of Fanny, the composer's beloved sister. The very key of F minor ("f" in German notation), its dark colours, the shuddering tremolos that open the work, and the moving wordless song of the Adagio leave no doubt that this is a requiem for Fanny. Felix's untimely death, just a few months after his elder sister's, would complete the transformation of the Op. 80 Quartet into a testamentary work, turned towards another world.

Almost a century later, Gabriel Fauré's only foray into the string quartet genre took place in similar circumstances: it was at the end of his life that the famous French master, handicapped by increasing deafness, decided to write his Quartet Op. 121, whose Andante is like a swan song. The Van Kuijks, wishing to place Mendelssohn in the global history of the string quartet, propose to go back in time to one of the founding fathers of the genre - Beethoven, whose Quartet op. 18 No. 6, with its finale entitled "La Malinconia" (melancholy), seems to herald the Mendelssohnian tragedy...
