ECSQ play Beethoven & Shostakovich (Saint John)

November 30, 2023 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

The Elm City String Quartet presents two masterworks; one an early turning point, and the other a maturation of a lifelong journey. Beethoven’s 14th string quartet is one of the famous “late” quartets, composed when he was nearing the end of his incredible career. The third string quartet of Shostakovich is seen as the composer’s first great success of imbedding his personality into a quartet piece. It is dark and desolate, sarcastic, and heart-breakingly intimate. Both these pieces are profound, artful, and deeply personal, and we can’t wait to share them with you.
