A talk and performance of Beethoven's String Quartet in F major, Op. 18 No.1 By Professor Christopher Hogwood and the Wilhelm Quartet How to be revolutionary without scaring away your public? How to announce yourself as a new broom without alienating the more stalwart connoisseurs? Beethoven faced these problems when presenting his first six string quartets for publication as opus 18; did he win his public and allay their fears with his choice of opening? The Wilhelm Quartet presents the evidence. The Wilhelm Quartet comprises: - Marciana Buta (violin) - Charlotte Skinner (violin) - Daisy Spiers (viola) - Hetty Snell (cello) The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-opening-salvo Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. http://www.gresham.ac.uk
