Last year's winner of the Orlando Award for best musical achievement at the 66th Dubrovnik Summer Festival, world-wide renowned Henschel Quartet, performed last night, 24 August, in a new beautiful festival venue, St Nicholas' Church Pinacotheca in Cavtat.
The year 1994 marked the foundation of the Henschel Quartett’s international career, when cellist Mathias Beyer-Karlshøj joined the founding members Christoph, Markus, and Monika Henschel, and the quartet devoted itself exclusively to chamber music. Last night’s repertoire included Mozart's StringQuartet No. 22 in B-flat major,Alberto Ginastera's Quartet No.1 and Beethoven's String Quartet No.7 in F major also known as Razumovsky.
Henschel Quartet, as a last year's laureate of the Orlando, along with a performance in Cavtat, where true connoisseurs of music greeted them, will perform tonight in front of St. Blaise's Church at the Closing Ceremony of 67th Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
