Enjoy live string music including works by Franz Schubert, Joaquín Turina and Ludwig van Beethoven.
This free event features the Petroglyph String Quartet performing works by Franz Schubert, Joaquín Turina, and Ludwig van Beethoven. The recital will open with the delightful Six Minuets and Five Trios, D.89, and early work by Schubert in the style of the German rustic dances. Turina’s emotive La oración del torero (prayer of the bulfigher) takes us inside the mind of the Toreador. Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 7, Op. 59, No. 1 shows the brilliance of the composer’s fertile middle period, while greatly expanding the string quartet genre. Donations gratefully accepted.
