This very special concert marks the conclusion of Ensemble 360’s full cycle of Beethoven’s String Quartets with the majestic quartet that inaugurated his late period. Before this, a new string version of Wallen’s celebrated choral setting of Langston Hughes’ iconic poem. To open the evening, Tim Horton performs Beethoven’s three final piano sonatas: intimate and personal, endlessly complex, monuments of this unique musical mind.
