Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Opus 95, “Serioso”
June 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Moon Doh, Host
Ellen Chen-Livingston, Shannon Fitzhenry, Erina Laraby-Goldwasser, Mikhail Istomin
The last of Beethoven’s middle quartets, String Quartet No. 11, dubbed by the composer as “Serioso,” is the shortest of the string quartet cycle. Despite a statement by Beethoven that the “Serioso” was never meant to be heard by the general public, it is perhaps his most well-known quartet, making it a particularly pleasing pairing with CLP – Mt. Washington, popular for its dramatic views.
