The Elm City String Quartet’s season continues with upcoming performances featuring work by Beethoven and Shostakovich. 

Beethoven’s 14th string quartet is one of the famous “late” quartets, composed when he was nearing the end of his incredible career. The third string quartet of Shostakovich is seen as the composer’s first great success of imbedding his personality into a quartet piece. It is dark and desolate, sarcastic, and heart-breakingly intimate.

All season programs include performances in Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John. Ticket pricing includes student and senior rates. Sistema students receive free admission. Season passes are available.
