"The quartet proved that they have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily; a capacity to make complicated music clear; and, most notably on this occasion, an ability to cast a magic spell."—The New York Times Beethoven's last major work—the String Quartet No. 16 in F major, op. 135—is intellectually confounding and emotionally ravaging, probing new musical territory with sharp contrasts of light and dark. The program, introduced by Bradley Strauchen-Scherer, Associate Curator, Department of Musical Instruments, opens with a string quartet rendering of Tomás Luis de Victoria's sublime 16th-century motet O Magnum Mysterium and concludes with Eliza Brown's Quartet No. 1 (2013).
