The Maxwell String Quartet
January 21, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Athenaeum is pleased to continue the 2019-2020 season of the Barbara & William Karatz Chamber Series. Enjoy chamber music as it was intended–in a warm, intimate setting, where you are treated as a guest in our historic home. All concerts are followed by a private reception with the artists.
We loved the Maxwell String Quartet’s concert in January 2019 so much that we invited them back for this season. Their performance of Beethoven’s String Quartet, Op. 130 with the Grosse Fuge was a season highlight, along with their wistful arrangements of Scottish folk music. For this season’s concert they’ll bring their technical mastery and probing insight to Beethoven’s “Harp” Quartet and to Debussy’s innovative and sensual String Quartet, which abandoned the rules of traditional harmony.
See our website for more details and the planned program for the evening.
The price for the concert is: $40 member / $45 nonmember
