Beethoven's String Quintet in C Major - La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest 2017

1/5/2018; 34 minutes

Beethoven's String Quintet in C Major is an unusually calm, even serene work from this frequently turbulent composer. The addition of a second viola allows for greater sonority and a richer harmonic palette than is possible with the standard string quartet configuration. The result is a composition that is among Beethoven's most graceful creations. Recorded on 08/09/2017. (#33138)
