AMANDINE BEYER, NEW ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT AMUZ
On 12 October, AMUZ proudly welcomes Amandine Beyer as new artist in residence. Beyer has been recognised for several years as a leading performer of baroque violin repertoire. Her recordings of J.S. Bach sonatas and partitas were awarded several international prizes, including the Diapason d’Or. She debuts on October the 12th in AMUZ with the Kitgut Quartet. An unmissable figure for Beyer’s first performance as artist in residence is Joseph Haydn. The ‘father’ of the string quartet is all too often dismissed as overly classical and solid, but in fact his music is highly inventive, playful and even humorous. His lively string quartet in D major is a revelation, with several interesting and innovative themes. His influence can also be felt in Schuberts seventh quartet which is bathed in an atmosphere of carefree optimism. Let the Kitgut Quartet be your discovery of the season!
