Alexander String Quartet wraps up three-year Beethoven cycle

By May 24, 2011

The Alexander String Quartet concludes its complete cycle of Beethoven’s string quartets with two concerts Sunday, June 5, at the Mondavi Center featuring the String Quartet in A Minor, Op. 132, and the String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135.

At 2 p.m., the string quartet will be joined by lecturer, composer and music historian Robert Greenberg. That performance is sold out, though there usually are a few turned-back tickets at the box office.

At 7 p.m., the quartet will perform the same two works, followed by a post-performance question-and-answer session with the audience. Tickets are $45 general, $22.50 for students, available at http://www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787.

The Alexander String Quartet will return to the Mondavi Center in the fall, beginning a new series featuring the music of Antonín Dvořák.
