CRESCENDO: 
Opus13 with Vertavo Quartet

Two quartets meet in late Romantic chamber music.

The string quartet Opus13 takes its name from Mendelssohn’s popular String Quartet no. 2, opus 13, as it was the first piece they played together after forming in 2014. In 2017 they make their international debut, with concerts in France and Denmark. The young ensemble met through studies at the Barratt Due Institute of Music, one of the three partners behind the mentoring programme Crescendo.

Not long after their debut, Opus 13 were invited to play alongside the Vertavo String Quartet in Oslo, on the occasion of the Vertavo’s 30th anniversary.

This evening in Troldsalen the two quartets meet again on stage. Svendsen’s String Octet draws on traditional folk tunes, while Mendelssohn’s work is influenced by Beethoven's late quartets.
