AFCM will celebrate 2020, the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, by programming all of that influential composer’s great string quartets. Well, almost all of them; the Takács Quartet gives us a head start at the end of 2019 with quartets from Beethoven’s early and middle periods, prefaced by music by Beethoven’s one-time teacher, Haydn.
