The ASQ closes our 16th season with a program of French Impressionism and German Romanticism. Saint-Saëns’ second quartet reveals the lyricism and witty invention which earned him the nickname ‘the French Mendelssohn.’ We follow this up with the first of the Beethoven late quartets, written shortly after he had finished his Ninth Symphony. From its wistfully dreamy first movement to the ethereally mysterious coda in the last, Beethoven charts a new course for others to follow as best they might.
