Ariel Quartet Returns To San Diego To Perform All-Beethoven ProgramConcerts “A blazing, larger-than-life performance.”—Washington Post
Distinguished by its virtuosic playing and impassioned interpretations, the Ariel Quartet has earned its glowing international reputation. The second of a five-concert Beethoven String Cycle series—the January 17 concert program celebrates the composer’s 250th birthday in 2020.
Widely considered to include some of Beethoven’s greatest compositions, this cycle consists of 16 quartets divided into three periods: early, when the composer was strongly influenced by Haydn and Mozart; middle, including three quartets that honored Russian Count Razumovsky; and late, a reflection of the final years of his life. The evening program includes Beethoven’s String Quartet in E-flat Major, op. 127; String Quartet in B-flat Major, op. 18, no. 6; String Quartet “Rasumovsky,” op. 59, no. 3
