Beethoven and Schubert
- Škampa Quartet
A long-term Wigmore favourite, the leading Czech quartet performs two works central to the repertoire: the first of Beethoven’s three ‘Razumovsky’ quartets (1806), commissioned by the eponymous Russian ambassador to Vienna, and Schubert’s 1824 masterpiece founded on one of his most powerful songs.
