Description

Dear friends,

Gwen Krosnick & Ari Isaacman-Beck (127 Anchovies) are delighted to announce the Second Season of the Boston Beethoven Cycle at Pucker Gallery!

The concerts - a chronological cycle of Beethoven's complete String Quartets, juxtaposed with solo string works of the 20th and 21st centuries - take place at Pucker Gallery (240 Newbury Street, 3rd Floor). The space seats sixty (marvelous for chamber music!), so we encourage you to reserve seats early.

Our October 30th performance, featuring two truly amazing colleagues from our musical homes of Yellow Barn and Kneisel Hall, will center on Beethoven's miraculous "Rasumovsky" Quartets, with interspersed solo works of Lei Liang and Thuridur Jónsdóttir, as well as series regular(!) Elliott Carter.


Please note our early start time for this concert: doors to the Gallery will open at 4:30pm, and the performance will begin promptly at 5pm. Audience members are welcome to enter late through the rear staircase.

We look forward to sharing many hours of music with you as we continue our three-year journey through Beethoven's complete string quartets - interspersed, as we believe they should be in our hometown, with terrific contemporary music (from Boston and beyond). It's astonishing - a dream - to venture into our second season, and the staggeringly-great Opus 59 quartets, and we're so delighted to have you listening.


All our best, with love,
Ari & Gwen
(127 Anchovies)
