Beethoven: String Quartet No. 1 in F major, Op. 18 No. 1
Beethoven: Grosse Fuge, Op. 133
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 16 in F major, Op. 135

The Amenda Quartet returns to the First Muse stage as part of their Project Ludwig: The Complete Beethoven String Quartets. The 2015-2016 season marks the fulfillment of their dream to perform all sixteen of Beethoven's quartets - the first "cycle" in Rochester since the  Cleveland Quartet's 1986-1987 season. It seemed only fitting to program both the first and the last published quartets, plus the monumental Grosse Fuge, which was the original last movement of the Op. 130 string quartet.

Our post-concert reception will be presented by First Unitarian Church's UU/Schools Partnership, recipients of 25% of this concert's ticket revenue.
