Haydn Voyages

Loss and Renewal

September 15, 2019 at 4 pm  |  Maritime Museum of San Diego

Haydn – Quartet no. 18 in E Major, op. 17/1 (1771)

Ryan Carter – world premiere

Beethoven – String Quartet no. 15 in a minor, op. 132 (1825)


This concert spans the full range of our human experience: from the unspeakable tragedy of losing a child and facing one’s own impending death after a long battle with poor health, contrasted with  the sense of hope and renewal that comes with the birth of another child, and the unexpected recovery after a long illness. Beethoven’s opus 132 Quartet is one if his final masterpieces, and guides the narrative arc of this program. A world premiere by Ryan Carter will explore similar themes, and Haydn’s quirky opus 17/1 Quartet completes this emotionally potent evening. This concert is also the annual celebration of KPBS’ sponsorship of Haydn Voyages.
