Description

After the long period of illness and suffering in 2020-21, we turn to Beethoven’s masterpiece, the Heiliger Dankgesang Quartet, for comfort and inspiration. Written just two years before his death, after several years of emotional and physical struggle, Beethoven found himself well enough to compose again and grateful to be alive. He titled the third movement “Heiliger Dankgesang eines Genesenen an die Gottheit, in der Lydischen Tonart.” This translates as “Song of Thanksgiving to the Deity from a convalescent, in the Lydian mode.” It is a profound and heartfelt prayer of thanks after his illness. The quartet is preceded by a delicious appetizer of Rolla Duets for violin and viola.
