    "Seizing the music's energy, shocking us out of our seats with every fortissimo" (The Guardian), the Belcea's passionate interpretations make it one of the most thrilling string quartets of the younger generation. The Quartet's debut at Duke Performances comes near the end of its yearlong, globe-spanning endeavor to perform and record the complete Beethoven string quartets. These immortal late opuses include the String Quartet No. 13 as well as its original final movement, the monumental Grosse Fuge. Savor an evening of Beethoven at the height of his powers with a "technically accomplished and uncommonly probing" (NY Times) ensemble. *** PROGRAM: BEETHOVEN: String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat Major, Op. 130 ; BEETHOVEN: Grosse Fuge in B-flat Major, Op. 133 ; BEETHOVEN: String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131
