the long version

Beethoven's final String Quartet is an indescribably powerful, transcendently life-affirming masterpiece. Its movements are centered around the towering slow section, which Beethoven wrote after recovering from a terrible illness, solemnly titling it a “Hymn of thanks to God from one who is healed.” In times of despair and division, the beauty of this music remains a balm to the soul, and a reminder of how we can find strength in our darkest moments.

The fabulous foursome of the Ulysses Quartet, who last joined us in the Catacombs to perform Schubert's Death and the Maiden, return once more, bringing their glorious musicality to this singular work.

The short version

The inscrutable beauty of this timeless work, played by one of today's top ensembles, in the hallowed vaults of the Catacombs... we'll see you there.

The Ulysses Quartet has been praised by The Strad for “the kind of chemistry many quartets long for, but rarely achieve.” Founded in 2015, the group won the grand prize and gold medal in the senior string division of the 2016 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and first prize in the 2018 Schoenfeld International String Competition. In 2017, the quartet finished first in the American Prize and won the Vietnam International Music Competition in 2019. Ulysses recently released their debut album, “Shades of Romani Folklore,” on the Navona label. Of the recording, Gramophone wrote that the quartet “promise[s] to bring as much sophistication, imagination and vitality to Beethoven’s other quartets as they will to music by a panoply of composers from long ago and today.”
