The multinational Chiaroscuro Quartet has performed to much acclaim on the most significant stages of Europe, United States, and Asia. The quartet’s unique sound reflects the usage of gut strings and historic bows. 

The quartet presents a program featuring works by the “founder” of string quartet, Joseph Haydn as well its first significant reformer, Ludwig van Beethoven. The opening season of Helsinki – Ritarihuone explores cultural connections between the cities of Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Vienna. 

The Viennese composer hero Beethoven dedicated a set of quartets to the Russian Ambassador Count Razumowsky. Beethoven’s connections to Finland were few, but the Viennese members of the Russian diplomatic corps, who soon after the composition of the quartets took up a presence in Helsinki as well, were among his close circles.
