Although concerts depend on people gathering to experience music together, the audience is rarely actively involved, especially when it comes to the selection of works. Yet why not ask the audience what it would like to hear? Following the principle of »ordering à la carte«, the audience has a democratic choice of which string quartets are to be played in this concert. The Mandelring Quartet offers nine exquisite pieces, all of them not only ground-breaking in string quartet history, but also key works in the ensemble’s long success story. Are you in the mood for the classical originality of Joseph Haydn? Would you like to know how much magical colour Claude Debussy

was able to draw from four instruments? Or would you prefer to hear Dmitri Shostakovich open the gates

Preparation needed? Mandelring violist Andreas Willwohl compiled listening examples for our digital stage

This concert will also be broadcast acoustically in the courtyard of the Ludwigsburg Residence Palace.

Afterwards Meet & Greet
