Once again toward the end of the season, the string quartet takes center stage at the Pierre Boulez Saal. In the space of 11 days, three top-tier international ensembles bring to life three eras of the quartet repertoire, creating inspiring encounters in the process.

With the string quartets from his later years, Mozart helped lay the foundations for the revolutionary innovations introduced by Beethoven and others in the decades that followed. The Cuarteto Casals takes on these classic works on two consecutive days.
