Concert Overview | 8:00pm

String Quartet in G Major, Op. 18 No. 2

The second quartet from his Op. 18 series shows Beethoven at his most playful with a delightful scherzo and a simple, but rambunctious tune in the final movement.

String Quartet in C Major, Op. 59 No. 3

The Op. 59 No. 3 quartet opens with an air of mystery and shadow, ending with an exuberant explosion of joy and brightness, and explores every emotion in-between.

String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132

Beethoven’s expansive third movement is a “Song of Thanksgiving” that expresses his joy while recovering from a serious illness.
