Brahms: The Quartets in Context
The Orion String Quartet presents a two-concert series featuring the complete string quartets of Johannes Brahms. The first concert pairs the opus 51 quartets of Brahms with Leon Kirchner’s String Quartet no. 4. The second concert, taking place Sunday afternoon, juxtaposes Brahms’ last string quartet with music by Anton Webern, as well as Beethoven’s famed String Quartet in c-sharp minor, op. 131.
