An opportunity for classical music lovers to deepen their knowledge of music with the Amici Musicae Lecture Series.
The next course will be held at the Riverside Library on Tuesdays from 1.30pm to 3.30pm from March 17th to May 24th, 2020.
Amici Musicae invites you to celebrate the anniversary of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth by attending a course devoted to his String Quartets. There is no doubt that, along with his symphonies and piano sonatas, Beethoven's string quartets lie at the very center of the concert repertoire and remain the single most varied and influential set of quartets composed in the 19th century.
The lectures are delivered DVD by Prof. Robert Greenberg . The Alexander Quartet will provide the audio version of some quartets.
