Classical Music In The Garden: Chamber Music Society of San Francisco 10th Anniversary Concert

Date:
Saturday, November 5, 2022, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Location:
1431 Waverley Street Palo Alto, CA 94301

Join us at a concert by the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco featuring opus 132 by Ludwig van Beethoven and other quartet favorites.

Beethoven’s opus 132 string quartet is from his collection of “late” quartets, written in the final years of his life. In these works, Beethoven turned inward, leaving us with some of his most exquisite and transcendental music. The Chamber Music Society of San Francisco opens its 10th anniversary season with a return to the masterpiece that brought these fine musicians together a decade ago.

Beethoven: String Quartet in a minor, op. 132
Mozart: “Dissonance” String Quartet in C Major, K465
