Daniel Sepec; Tabea Zimmermann and Jean-Guihen Queyras | Beethoven String Trios

In this concert bringing together three exceptional musicians whose confluence has been described as forming a ‘super trio’, Beethoven’s major works for string trio comprise the programme – all of them early pieces, dating from between 1794 and 1798.

Here the Beethoven items – written between 1782 and 1803 – are interspersed with works by 20th-century American experimentalists.
