Event Details

Beethoven in the City: Free String Quartet Concert Series | SF

In celebration of Cypress String Quartet’s 20th and final season together, and of the great city of SF and its people who have supported them through the years, the Quartet presents the complete string quartets of Beethoven in 16 free concerts all over San Francisco, May 4 through 19, 2016.

In nearly 20 years on the concert stage, the four members of the San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet (CSQ) have played thousands of concerts together throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Praised by Gramophone for their “artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion,” and by the NY Times for “tender, deeply expressive” interpretations, they have recorded over 15 albums and are played regularly on hundreds of radio stations throughout the world. They have also been heard on the Netflix original series “House of Cards” and have collaborated with leading artists ranging from Michael Franti of Spearhead to modern dance companies.
