The program for the Simply Strings concert features three masterpieces of the string quartet repertoire. Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 2 String Quartet is one of the composer’s earliest quartets, and it is a showcase for his genius for melody and harmony. Barber’s String Quartet, Op. 11 is a more somber work, but it is also full of beauty and emotion. The Adagio for Strings is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written, and it is sure to move even the most hardened listener. Dvorak’s String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 “American” is a celebration of American music. The quartet is full of folk melodies and rhythms, and it is a perfect example of Dvorak’s genius for incorporating folk music into his classical compositions.

The “Simply Strings” concert is an afternoon of beautiful music that is sure to please audiences of all ages. The Artisan String Quartet is a talented ensemble that brings a fresh perspective to the classical repertoire.
