FEATURING: DEBUSSY String Quartet in G Minor SCHULHOFF Five Pieces for String Quartet BEETHOVEN String Quartet Op. 95, “Serioso” 

We end our 2016-17 season with a program of exciting and classic string quartet repertoire. Though it received mixed reviews at the time, Debussy's singular string quartet has become a cornerstone of the modern string quartet repertoire. Lesser known are the Five Pieces of Schulhoff, a modern take on the baroque dance suite. We'll end with Beethoven's "Serioso" quartet, a personal reflection on the composer's life at the time, and the only quartet to which Beethoven ascribed a subtitle.
