About This Performance

“The Johannes is all I could ever dream of in a string quartet,” says no less of an authority than Arnold Steinhardt, first violinist of the legendary Guarneri Quartet. The group of four esteemed artists has become a Philadelphia favorite in over 15 years of inspired music-making. Its annual appearance with the Society culminates in Beethoven’s Op. 131 quartet, perhaps the most emotionally penetrating and greatest of all string quartets.

Mozart: Quartet in D Major, K. 499, Hoffmeister
Ravel: Quartet in F Major
Beethoven: Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131
