We are dumbfounded to announce that we will be performing on a Giovanni Granchino violin (1693), a Giorgio Serafin violin (1750), a Matteo Goffriller viola (1727), and a Giuseppe Guarneri cello (1715) for this concert – thanks to the generosity of Bein & Fushi. Our board member, Joe Bein, will open the show with a brief introduction to these superb instruments, and you can read more about this extraordinary loan over on our Blog.
In indie rock and metal, there is an old trope amongst uppity fans that goes something like, “I prefer their earlier work,” but when it comes to Beethoven, devotees largely seem to sway toward the late quartets. The good news is that no one has to choose, but for 2018/19, we’re making our first foray into Ludwig van’s final composition, the enigmatic String Quartet Op. 135.
This concert is FREE and open to the public
