Mozart: Quartet in C major, K.465 ("Dissonance")
The ten Mozart “Famous” quartets are famous for a good reason: they are perfect pieces beloved by all quartet players. The C-major “Dissonance” quartet is a favorite in this collection for its mysterious opening adagio and its sunny disposition throughout. We will explore the qualities that make it so and will enjoy, as always, just being involved in playing this challenging piece.

Beethoven: Quartet in A major, Op. 18 no.5
The A-major quartet is less often played than some of the others in the Op. 18 canon, oddly enough. This quartet, full of intense activity for all players, rewards us for the effort required to play it. Despite an abundance of rhythmic challenges, bowing issues galore, and the concentration essential to perform it, this is still a glorious piece to play! It’s great fun to work on and offers us insight into the brighter side of Beethoven’s compositional personality.
The Workshops take place from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and include:
The one-day, all inclusive price of $180 for each workshop includes lunch. Due to the individual nature of the coaching and master classes, each workshop is limited to 40 participants.
These workshops are open to all players -- amateur, pre-professional, and professional. Pre-formed groups are encouraged to apply.
