  • Beethoven Quartet Cycle - Part IV
Music / Classical

Performed by DOVER QUARTET

This season we fulfill a longtime dream of presenting the complete cycle of Beethoven's string quartets, to be performed by the remarkably talented Dover Quartet between November and April. Composed against the turbulent backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars and their aftermath, Beethoven's complete string quartets provide deep insight into his evolution as a composer. 

The Dover Quartet is "...the next Guarneri String Quartet – they're that good." – Chicago Tribune 

Quartet in D Major, Op. 18, No. 3
Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95, "Serioso"
Quartet in F Major, Op. 59, No. 1
