Beethoven: String Quartet in C major, Op. 59 No. 3
PCMF celebrates the written word, starting with Korngold’s charming suite of incidental music to Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. American Haiku takes inspiration from the Japanese poetic form, throws in some Appalachian fiddling, and ends up with a musical language that’s all Paul Wiancko. Dana Wilson’s The Night of H’s sets Jasmine Lin’s whimsical poem for four actors doing double duty as a string quartet. Beethoven inscribed his Third Razumovsky Quartet with a statement refusing to cede to his growing deafness – and the music bears out his determination.
Ticket information will be available in June.
