“Each concert is polished, thoroughly conscientious, and revelatory, and their skilled performances enhance the musical content.”
— East Bay Express, 6 March 1998

Appearing in their string quartet configuration, members of this accomplished consortium of local musicians present new music alongside classic masterworks, highlighting the ever-expanding continuum of chamber music. Tonight we will hear one of the revered late Beethoven quartets, Op. 131, teamed with three contemporary works inspired by this great piece.

Program:
BEETHOVEN and his LEGACY
Beethoven: String Quartet in c# minor, Op. 131
Bill Beck: Communion for String Quartet and Electronics
Sam Nichols: Variations for String Quartet
Yu-Hui Chang: Shadow Chase for String Quartet
(All but Beethoven commissioned by LCCE in 2003)
