A Last Look at Ludwig

    • Speaker: Bruce Adolphe, OtHA Artistic Director and composer
      Artists: Miami String Quartet (Benny Kim and Cathy Meng-Robinson, violins; d, viola; Keith Robinson, cell)

      Beethoven’s daring Opus 95 String Quartet was an intellectual and artistic experiment that was not intended for public performance, while Bruce Adolphe’s quartet Whispers of Mortality was recently the focus of an internet experiment in musical meaning and communication. SummerFest 2020’s Dynamics Series concludes with an exploration of how music communicates in “A Last Look at Ludwig,” hosted by Bruce Adolphe and featuring the Miami String Quartet in performances of these two quartets.
