The New York Classical Players and The Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center offer another afternoon of Beethoven chamber music and conversation, plus a special opportunity of view a treasured page from Ludwig van Beethoven’s sketchbooks. This second Beethoven Encounters program focuses on the Op. 18 String Quartets Nos. 1, 4, and 5. Hear virtuosic and thoughtfully prepared performances from some of New York’s most gifted young musicians. See Beethoven’s own masterful pen strokes, and learn how string quartets make choices as an ensemble, enliven music that is centuries old, and, using horsehair, steel and wood, create sounds that invigorate and move us.
