Ludwig van Beethoven: Quartet in B-flat Major, Op.18, No.6
Bela Bartok: String Quartet No.3
Robert Schumann: Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op.44
with Alexandre Dossin, piano

The Arianna Quartet celebrates the start of their 19th season in St. Louis in style, with an opening concert featuring three of the masterpieces of the classical, romantic, and 20th century repertoire!  Beethoven’s irrepressible Quartet in B-flat, Op.18, No.6, kicks off the concert season with an effervescent energy and revolutionary new style that glimpses the winds of change that Beethoven plans to bring to the classical era.  The revolution continues as the ASQ performs Bela Bartok’s momentous String Quartet No.3, the 1927 masterwork that mixes supreme clarity of expression with a contemporary sound that is as pertinent now, as ever. Internationally acclaimed piano virtuoso Alexandre Dossin then joins the Arianna Quartet for Robert Schumann’s heroic Piano Quintet, Op,44, one of the essential gems of the chamber music repertoire.  Be sure to join the ASQ as they ring in the new season at the Touhill with these three thrillers!

This performance features a pre-show talk with the Arianna String Quartet. Please arrive 50 minutes early for the pre-show discussion.
