Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp minor, Opus 131
June 27 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Benjamin Binder, Host
Louis Lev, Cecee Pantikian, Marylène Gingras-Roy, Michael Lipman
The apex of Beethoven’s string quartet cycle meets its counterpart in the CLP – Main, Andrew Carnegie’s original library gift to the City of Pittsburgh in 1895, and continuing to serve as the city’s primary, full-service resource for information, and current and historic materials. Mirroring the CLP- Main’s continuous architectural form, flowing from library to music hall to museum, is the work that Beethoven considered the greatest achievement among his many quartets: String Quartet No. 14, an uninterrupted, seven-movement masterpiece moving seamlessly among a rich array of melodies and emotions.
