Newburgh Chamber Music Series Presents the American String Quartet
Newburgh Chamber Music Series presents the second in its two-year series of performances of all of the Beethoven string quartets with the American String Quartet. The ASQ will perform Opus 18, No. 3, Opus 95, and Opus 59, No. 3 as the second set of quartets in this unprecedented 2-year journey of arguably some of Beethoven's finest and most innovative compositions.
Internationally recognized as one of the world's finest quartets, the American String Quartet has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous. The Quartet celebrated its 35th anniversary in the 2010-2011 season, and, in its years of touring, has performed in all fifty states and has appeared in the most important concert halls worldwide. Their presentations of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartók, and Mozart have won widespread critical acclaim, and their MusicMasters Complete Mozart String Quartets, performed on a matched quartet set of instruments by Stradivarius, are widely considered to have set the standard for this repertoire.
