About A Mind Forever Voyaging

Marmen Quartet

This is the compelling story of the growth of a great mind, in three snapshots from Beethoven’s epoch-making series of string quartets. The young man’s passionate adagio, based on Romeo and Juliet, is overtaken just eight years later by a revolutionary genius leaving his contemporaries far behind, exploring the mysterious spaces between harmonies.

Finally, the dying composer gives ‘Holy Thanksgiving’ for a reprieve from illness, in some of the most radiant and searching music ever written. Between these snapshots come two of Pärt’s serene miniatures, and a recent work by the fine young New Zealand composer Salina Fisher.
