Musical Masterworks Presents Beethoven String Quartets


Musical Masterworks looks forward to celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday in December when Edward Arron, Artistic Director and cellist, along with his colleagues James Ehnes, violin;  Amy Schwartz Moretti, violin; and Che-Yen Chen, viola, will perform three monumental string quartets by Beethoven, spanning nearly 30 years of his life and demonstrating the full arc of his astounding compositional evolution.

This performance will be filmed in mid-December and the link to the virtual concert will be made available to ticket buyers on January 2, 2021.  The video can be enjoyed for three weeks and watched as many times as one wishes.  Ticket holders will be able to experience Musical Masterworks like never before: our audio-video production team will create an intimate concert experience, providing a virtual front row seat featuring the beauty of the performers’ artistry up close and personal.

Edward Arron shared his thoughts about this concert, “We are honored to dedicate this performance to the great master. While under current circumstances we are not able to reconstitute the full cycle of quartets that we had planned for last spring, we are delighted to provide this fascinating window into the extraordinary compositional mind of Beethoven.”

In 2021, Musical Masterworks will welcome back a parade of favorite artists, including Rieko Aizawa, Todd Palmer, Jeewon Park, Randall Scarlata, Gilles Vonsattel, and Tessa Lark, featuring musical treasures from Bach to Corigliano.
