Beethoven And Schumann.


  • Beethoven String Quartet No. 11
  • Schumann  String Quartet No. 3

Get closer to our musicians and discover one of Birmingham's best kept musical secrets, a series of short, informal concerts programmed and introduced by our musicians at CBSO Centre. 

Beethoven said of his eleventh string quartet that it was ‘written for a small circle of connoisseurs and is never to be performed in public.’ Join our own group of connoisseurs to listen for the influence of Beethoven’s ground-breaking tonal ambiguity and chromatic harmony in Schumann’s String Quartet No. 3. 


Performance durations vary, but are usually less than 1 hour.
A selection of delicious cakes and hot drinks will be available to buy up to an hour before the performances.
