Beethoven’s sixteen string quartets occupy a place of honor in the chamber repertoire and, like his symphonies and piano sonatas, trace his progression through his creative life. 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth, and the Ébène Quartet is recognizing this with Beethoven Around the World, encompassing live recordings of the complete cycle made in seven of the world’s great cities: Vienna, Philadelphia, Tokyo, São Paulo, Melbourne, Nairobi, and Paris.
