TWO ALL-BEETHOVEN CONCERTS FROM CARNEGIE HALL
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8 - 9:00 PM
The Belcea Quartet, a group that approaches everything it plays with "timeless daring" (The New York Times), continues its three-concert focus on Beethoven's epoch-making late quartets. This program features the E-flat–Major Quartet, Op. 127—the first of the five final quartets that changed the string quartet genre forever—and the B-flat–Major Quartet, Op 130.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 8:00 PM
With blocks of massive choral forces and contrasting moments of repose, the Missa solemnis is uniquely Beethovenian in its ability to convey a broad faith in humankind. Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, and The Monteverdi Choir come together to perform this grand plea for peace.
