Beethoven – Quartets Op. 131 & 135
in version for string orchestra

Through their depth of focus in their approach to works and fathoming their facilities, the KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN breaks new interpretive ground. Together with Rémy Ballot, the musicians are dedicated to the search for the works’ truth. Ballots penetration of the music and his unveiling of its inner logic lead to a new understanding of the orchestra in mutual trust shared with the musicians. With experimental programming, they also introduce unconventional contexts.


The way Ballot lets the music pause here and at the same time creates an enormous tension that only erupts in the final movement is simply great art.
– The New Listener, Florian Schuck
