From Beethoven's Structure to the Fluid and Cyclical World of Debussy

From Beethoven's Structure to the Fluid and Cyclical World of Debussy

Date: Friday, August 22, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Performers: California String Quartet
Type: Musical Performance

The California String Quartet returns to perform two starkly contrasting pieces from the 19th century—Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 6 in B flat major, Op. 18, and Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, Op. 10. The evening begins with the structure and mastery of Beethoven, then separates from classical harmony with Debussy’s cyclical structure, sensuality and impressionistic tonal shifts.
