Beethoven & Shostakovich

Chamber Series >

While composing his Ninth String Quartet, Shostakovich discarded a whimsical early version based on childhood themes and opted for a more assertive musical narrative. Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11, subtitled “Serioso,” foreshadows some of Shostakovich’s trademarks, including dramatic, unexpected harmonic shifts and experimental structures. His Horn Sextet unfolds like a smaller-scale concerto, with virtuosic horn lines supported by the string quartet.
