Melissa Matson, viola     Mimi Hwang, cello
 
with guest cellist Michael Kannen
 
The Amenda Quartet continues their "Project Ludwig," an exploration of all sixteen quartets by Beethoven, with the dramatic and exciting Op. 59 No. 3. From the shocking chords of the slow introduction to the dazzling chase of the last movement, the Quartet brings out the most of this work from Beethoven's middle period. (Amenda Quartet trading cards will be given out to all in attendance!)
 
Another work in C major, the well-known quintet for string quartet and cello by Franz Schubert, provides the opportunity to hear out-of-town colleague Michael Kannen, from the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory.
 
Join us for a wonderful evening, and afterwards for a reception provided by the Honduras Task Force of the First Unitarian Church - recipients of 25% of the concert ticket revenue.
