2016 Starts Beethoven: Before, During and After

Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets2016 Gets Rolling With a New ASQ and Robert Greenberg Series — Beethoven: Before, During and After

Bad hair, bad temper, and bad attitude: Beethoven, the bad boy from Bonn changed the very way we listen to, think and talk about music. Like him or not, every composer since Beethoven has had to deal, somehow, with his compositional and expressive innovations. This series features four works by Beethoven (“during”); a string quartet that profoundly influenced Beethoven (Mozart’s A Major, K. 464, “before”); and three works powerfully influenced by Beethoven (“after”). Along the way the Alexander String Quartet will be joined by the legendary pianist Roger Woodward in a rare performance of Beethoven’s Piano Quartet No. 3 in C Major and Robert Greenberg’s quintet for piano and strings, Invasive Species.
