An epic concert featuring Beethoven's three final piano sonatas, and also the first of his late string quartets - marking the conclusion of Ensemble 360's survey of the complete Beethoven quartet cycle.

This very special concert marks the conclusion of Ensemble 360’s full cycle of Beethoven’s String Quartets with the majestic quartet that inaugurated his late period. Before this, a new string version of Wallen’s celebrated choral setting of Langston Hughes’ iconic poem. To open the evening, Tim Horton performs Beethoven’s three final piano sonatas: intimate and personal, endlessly complex, monuments of this unique musical mind.
