Carya String Quartet: Eternal Questions

May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Beethoven quartets have become a staple of the quartet repertoire since they were written almost 200 years ago. In their sixth season, the Carya String Quartet explores some of their favorites from Beethoven’s oeuvre while exploring the influences that Beethoven has had throughout the centuries.

“Eternal Questions” will feature Beethoven’s Op. 135, which opens with a question set to music: “Muss es sein?” or “Must it be?”. 120 years later, Shostakovich asked a similar question in the final movement of his Third Quartet: “Why? And for what?” These existential questions are explored musically also by Nina C. Young’s 2013 meditation on life and time, Memento Mori.
