Lembit Beecher, the SPCO’s Music Alive composer-in-residence, curates and hosts this program which features his most recent string quartet, written in 2016 and inspired by his love of Schubert. The ideas of repetition and obsession, combined with a sense of nostalgia and longing, inhabit all the works on the program.
Janáček: Mládí (Youth) Suite for Wind Sextet
Beecher: Small Infinities for String Quartet
Schubert: String Quartet in C Minor, Quartettsatz
Led by SPCO musicians
