Collection Description

Collection Title
Beethoven Quartett Society (1845)
Unique Identifier
A collection of programmes for five meetings of the Beethoven Quartett Society, given at 76 Harley Street, London on 21 April, 5 and 19 May, and 2 and 16 June 1845, arranged chronologically in a bound volume.

Each meeting included the performance of three quartets by Beethoven, typically an early, middle-period, and late work.

The programmes contain printed extracts from the beginning of each movement of the featured quartets, along with some historical observations on the works.

The volume concludes with a prospectus for a similar series of performances dedicated to the quartets of Haydn, who is described as ‘the great Father of that refined School of Music’.
