9/27: Cavani String Quartet at CIM

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 4:10 PM

Beethoven’s string quartets cover a lot of musical ground. The early ones are in the classical tradition: very orderly and clear. The middle ones — known as the Razumovsky quartets — push the form and add some drama, and are the most popular. The later ones are the most complex. Having played all 16 of them last year at public libraries around town, the Cavani String Quartet begins the cycle again this afternoon — this time at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The first program in the two-year project includes Quartets No. 9 (one of the Razumovskys) and No. 14. Violinists Annie Fullard and Mari Sato, violist Kirsten Docter and cellist Merry Peckham perform at 2 p.m. at CIM’s Mixon Hall (11021 East Blvd., 216.791.5000). Admission is free, but seating passes are required. — Michael Gill
