Sándor Végh Memorial Concerts 11-14 January 2019

MOZART – Adagio and Fugue K546
BEETHOVEN – Grosse Fuge Op.133
BEETHOVEN – String Quartet in C sharp minor Op.131

A special project in January 2019 will reunite a group of musicians who are former students of legendary Hungarian violinist and IMS Prussia Cove’s founder Sándor Végh. In 1987 and 1989 a small string orchestra conducted by Sándor Végh recorded Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge Op.133 and his late string quartet Op.131. Now, 30 years later, IMS Prussia Cove have brought together as many of the original performers as possible for memorial concerts featuring these pieces in Cornwall, Bristol and London.

IMS Prussia Cove is a charitable organisation dedicated to music-making at the highest level. We foster new generations of talented musicians, support musical idealism and enable international collaboration. With renowned cellist Steven Isserlis as Artistic Director since 1996, IMS Prussia Cove has become one of classical music’s most respected institutions and many of the world’s greatest performers and composers consider the our seminars a major influence on their musical development. Our concerts offer performances of the highest calibre, while outreach and education projects engage young people and new audiences.

Sándor Végh died in January 1997, and this is the 22nd year that musicians closely involved with IMS have given memorial concerts in his honour.
