Description: Program four has a madcap title though the music is probably much less so. This final set of concerts will open with Franz Schubert's quaint and refreshing little String Quartet No.9 in g-minor (D.173) - rarely programmed concert repertoire and a charming piece of music. The madness may occur in Anton Webern's Fünf Sätze, Op.5 a brief, quirky, jaunty journey through quartet textures and sounds. Or the madness might occur in Beethoven's ground breaking Quartet in Eb major, Op.127. Either way, come join us in this survey of these Viennese chamber music classics.
