Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet no. 12, op. 127

The Alma Quartet and jazz saxophonist Benjamin Herman would seem to be the odd ones out in the festival programme as a whole. Armed with a carte blanche for Benjamin, they join forces on a quest to unearth the jazz in Beethoven. What exactly will take place on stage remains a surprise – will it be the Alma Quartet + Benjamin Herman solo or will he bring along the entire New Cool Collective?
