Spend an afternoon with the Sarasota String Quartet and three of music history’s great masters. Haydn wrote 68 string quartets. Opus 76, Quartet No. 2, has been given the nickname “Fifths” in reference to a pattern of falling intervals that dominates the first movement. Webern’s 1905 String Quartet was inspired by the Italian painter Giovanni Segantini’s “Alpine Tryptich.” The program concludes with Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11, the last of Beethoven’s heroic, middle period quartets.
