The Miró Quartet and soprano Kiera Duffy will explore the revolutionary music of one of Beethoven’s middle quartets—as well as music by composers he inspired. Schubert was part of an innovative group of artists, poets, and musicians in Vienna after Beethoven; Berg emerged from the post-Freudian psychological revolution of the 1910s and 1920s; and George Crumb was immersed in the radical climate of the 1960s and 1970s.

Program (subject to change):
Schubert: Quartettsatz in C Minor, D 703
Schubert: “Gretchen am Spinnrade,” “Im Frühling,” and “Der Erlkönig”
