Arnica String Quartet and Peter Zisa, classical guitar - Celebrating Beethoven & More
Celebrating Beethoven and More!
The Arnica String Quartet (3 members of the Oregon Symphony) are known for performances of the highest quality. Arnica will begin this powerful program with Beethoven’s Razumovsky Quartet #2 - a chamber masterpiece written when Beethoven wrote: “Let my deafness no longer be a secret, - even in my art!”
The Arnica String Quartet is joined by acclaimed classical guitarist Dr. Peter Zisa, play Mauro Giuliani's Guitar Concerto in A Op. 30. Giuliani was an admirer of Beethoven, and one-time member as a cellist in the premier performance of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony (1813). Hearing Giuliani perform, Beethoven remarked, “He (Giuliani) makes the guitar sound like a little orchestra.”
