Unbelievable, mythical works of art and crazy freedom!

Ami Flammer, surrounded by his three friends Paul Serri on violin, Michel Michalakakos on viola and Diana Ligeti on cello, celebrates in the most beautiful way possible the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven by performing his last four string quartets op 130, 131, 132 and 135. It is also the occasion to celebrate the 300th anniversary of his violin - a Guarnerius, Joseph son of Andrew. It belonged to Ignatius Schuppanzigh, a great violinist, friend of Beethoven's, creator of the first quartet - the perfect form: four tessitura: two violins, a viola, a cello, the sixteen-stringed instrument! Beethoven's last four quartets were played on this violin; Beethoven knew it well, but never heard it because he had been deaf for a long time. This double anniversary makes it possible to be one with an incredible moment in the history of music that these last compositions represent, outside the rules of writing and yet always coherent, having opened the way to composers such as John Cage or Salvator Sciarrino. A concert full of surprises for those who, like Ami Flammer, continue to be amazed by Beethoven's sound and musical imagination. 250 years and still not a wrinkle!
