Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Performers: California String Quartet
Type: Musical Performance

The California String Quartet returns for a performance of one of Beethoven’s famous late quartets, Op. 131. Beethoven took the classical string quartet and radically expanded the art form in every conceivable way. The quartets became longer, more complicated and more difficult to play, and more intellectually and emotionally intense. "A Late Quartet" summarizes this overall progress in its move from darkness and its struggle for light and spiritual renewal.
