Beethoven + Mendelssohn

In Focus culminates with Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 12 in E♭ major (1825), one of the composer’s late string quartets. Beethoven’s six late quartets, written in failing health, were dismissed by musicians and audiences of the day, but are now considered to be among the greatest musical compositions ever. Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 12 is contrasted with Mendelssohn’s Octet, written in the same year, but composed by Mendelssohn when he was just 16 years old.

Curated by concertmaster Margaret Batjer, In Focus features some of Beethoven’s most successful and popular chamber music.

the venues

In Focus takes place at two outstanding venues: Santa Monica’s First Presbyterian Church and the elegant Rothenberg Hall located at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. This provides convenience and accessibility for both West and Eastsiders – in essence, putting the Orchestra’s music where its audiences live.
