An air-raid shelter during World War II, CLP – South Side hosts Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 10, an idealistic work composed after the French invasion of Vienna in 1809. With his hearing in rapid decline and Vienna fallen, Beethoven turned to the string quartet to imagine a world after tumult. By turns hopeful and poignant, the “Harp” quartet showcases Beethoven’s evolution in expressing his inner self through music.
