The Doric String Quartet has a long history of collaboration with Dean. It will perform the Dutch première of his new string quartet and subsequently join forces with him in Beethoven’s ‘Storm’ quintet.

2020 marks Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. The String Quartet Biennale pays tribute to him with the Early Beethovens in the morning, the Late Beethovens in the evening and, to top it all off, his string quintet op. 29 – a no less imposing work than his string quartets. 

The pre-concert introduction will be given (in Dutch) by Carel den Hartog at 7.30 pm in the Kleine zaal.
