The Belcea Quartet perform at the 2011 Edinburgh International Festival. Haydn: Quartet in F minor. Turnage: Twisted Blues with Twisted Ballad. Beethoven: Quartet in B flat.

EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2011

The award-winning Belcea Quartet perform Mark-Anthony Turnage's latest string quartet which was composed specially for them. Intimidated by the sheer perfection reached in this genre by composers such as Haydn and Beethoven, Turnage turned instead to inspiration from rock music and not for the first time, to the music of Led Zeppelin for an alternative approach. Presented by Jamie MacDougall
