FREE to all weekend classical ticket holders, this Thursday night experience moderated by ASO Program Annotator and Music Consultant Ken Meltzer features our own Orchestra musicians playing in a smaller, more intimate chamber concert before the night's performance. Seating is on stage, giving you a closer look at the music and musicians, and making you a part of the whole experience.For this recital, Beethoven's String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat major, Op. 74, will be performed. This work was written in 1809 and is nicknamed the "Harp" quartet. The nickname "Harp" refers to the characteristic pizzicato sections in the allegro of the first movement, where pairs of members of the quartet alternate notes in an arpeggio, reminiscent of the plucking of a harp. Like many nicknames for Beethoven's works, this was created by the publisher.Chamber Recitals are supported by a generous grant from Ken and Carolyn Meltzer.
