Beethoven beats at Baxter

2017-05-09 06:00

The beats of Beethoven will be heard at the Baxter on Saturday.

Continuing their interpretation in recital for the Cape Town concert series of the Beethoven string quartets, violinist David Juritz and members of the Amici Quartet will play three more, Op 18 No 1, Op 74 and Op 132, in their recital on Saturday at 20:00.

Cape Town-born David is one of the most versatile violinists currently working in the United Kingdom, dividing his time between solo performances, directing, chamber music, working as guest leader with many of Britain’s finest orchestras and leading his own group, the London Tango Quintet.

He left Cape Town to study at the Royal College of Music. In 2014 he joined forces with three of South Africa’s leading chamber musicians, violinist Suzanne Martens, cellist Peter Martens and violist Karin Gaertner of the Amici Quartet, for a project to perform all of Beethoven’s string quartets in a series of concerts.

After the success of the first chapter in the Cape Town concert series last year, local audiences will be delighted to welcome them back.

David plays on a violin made by JB Guadagnini in Piacenza in 1748.

V Tickets cost R150 from Computicket. Student and senior citizen discounts are also available from 021 439 7663 or info@­ctconcerts.­co.za.
