November series, “All A-Twitter”, which features Beethoven’s Op.132. Many of you may remember this piece from our recent CD, Pathways to Healing. This piece has been called a haunting treasure, and it is one of the string quartets composed by Beethoven late in his life. He had been deaf for many years and some people speculate that the music of his inner ideas was even stronger during this late period. Also up on the November program are Haydn’s masterpiece - Op. 33, (nicknamed “The Bird”), which features bird-like tone painting and gypsy influences. Sculthorpe’s String Quartet No. 8 with its thrilling Asian influences will close out these concerts. The comfortable balance in this program that the DaPonte String Quartet chose is sure to peak your interest and perhaps introduce you to a piece that you have not yet heard the DSQ perform.
