Beethoven: String Quartet in A Major, Op. 18, No. 5
Bartók: String Quartet No. 5
Dvořák: String Quartet No. 11 in C Major, Op. 61
Juilliard String Quartet (Joseph Lin, violin; Ronald Copes, violin; Roger Tapping, viola; Astrid Schween, cello)
Da Camera launched its inaugural season in 1988 with this distinguished quartet. Founded in 1946, the Juilliard String Quartet has become a living American legend. Now, in celebration of Da Camera’s 30th anniversary, the Quartet returns to Houston in its newest configuration, with a thrilling program of three major works. Widely known as the “quintessential American string quartet,” the Juilliard brings us young Beethoven in high spirits, Bartók’s electrifying fifth quartet and the lush late Romanticism of Dvořák.
“The Juilliard String Quartet can plausibly be called the most important American quartet in history…completely revitalized.” — The Boston Globe
