Composers like Schubert, Schumann and Wagner, plus musicologists over the centuries, have used superlatives of all kinds to describe the String Quartet #14 by Beethoven. Revolutionary at the time for its many musical innovations, it was also the composer’s own personal favorite string quartet. The String Quartet #14 by Beethoven is today’s Midday Masterpiece.
The ensemble you’ll hear perform this work, the Miró Quartet, will also perform music of Mozart, Brahms and more TONIGHT at 7 at Sacramento State as part of the New Millennium Concert Series. Find information and tickets at CSUS.edu/music.
