Portland Chamber Music Festival: Bartók and Beethoven


The first concert of PCMF's inaugural Winter Warmer Festival!

Our musical adventure opens with two masterworks brimming with kaleidoscopic colors, rollicking rhythms, and harmonic daring, performed by the Borromeo String Quartet. Bartok’s String Quartet No. 5 is an avant-garde marvel blending folk motifs with modernist sophistication, written in just one month with the composer at the peak of his creative powers. The first of Beethoven’s six legendary "late quartets," which comprise his final and perhaps greatest musical achievement, Op. 127 is a profoundly emotional sonic exploration. Astonishing, innovative, and filled with magical moments, this landmark work blends sublime beauty with superhuman virtuosity.

Béla Bartók String Quartet No. 5 (1934) Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, Op. 127 (1825)
