The story behind "Beethoven Around The World"

The genesis of "Beethoven Around The World" occurred in 2014 when Quatuor Ébène was invited to perform the complete Beethoven String Quartets at Carnegie Hall in New York in 2020, for the composer’s 250th jubilee year. From April 2019 to January 2020, the Quatuor Ébène recorded Beethoven's 16 String Quartets in a worldwide project with 40 concerts across 18 countries and all six continents, showing how Beethoven's music transcends borders. Their album was recorded in 7 stages: in Philadelphia (Kimmel Center), Vienna (Konzerthaus), Tokyo (Suntory Hall), São Paulo (Sala São Paulo), Melbourne (Melbourne Recital Centre), Nairobi (Alliance française de Nairobi), and Paris (Philharmonie de Paris - Cité de la musique). To accompany this album release and that of their upcoming documentary film, the Quatuor Ébène will perform the complete Beethoven String Quartets in concert: an opportunity to discover the emblematic figure of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven and the talent of the Quatuor Ébène!

The 2019 USA tour for the project "Beethoven Around The World" was supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
