About The Event
Arcadia Quartet conquered the musical world in 2012 when they emerged as winners of the Wigmore Hall London International String Quartet Competition. BBC Music Magazine hailed Ana Török (violin), Răsvan Dumitru (violin), Traian Boală (viola) and Zsolt Török (cello) as being “astonishing in their emotional commitment and dramatic timing [...] with formidable technical skill” while Sunday Times praised them for making "a totally new kind of music [...] with searing intensity". For the Enescu Soirées, they will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14, Op. 131, one of the composer's enigmatic yet revelatory late string quartets, and Dan Dediu's String Quartet No. 7, Op. 171 Für Ulisse. Dediu, who is one of Romania’s foremost musicians, composed the piece last year during the most challenging times of the pandemic to mark the 250 years since Beethoven's birth. The work was commissioned by the Romanian Radio and the Rotary Club Pipera.
