This week Earpiece offers a performance in Atlanta by the Peachtree String Quartet at Atlanta Symphony Hall, which had its ASO Virtual Stage video premiere on April 16, 2020.
Peachtree String Quartet was formed in 2012, and in this performance we hear violinists Christopher Pulgram (director) and Sissi Yuqing Zhang, violist Yang-Yoon Kim, and cellist Thomas Carpenter, all members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Beethoven’s String Quartet no. 10 was written in 1809 and is nicknamed the “Harp” quartet by its publisher because of the harp-like pizzicato sections in the first movement.
The four movements are:
- Poco adagio – Allegro
- Adagio ma non troppo
- Allegretto con variazioni
The next live local performance by Peachtree String Quartet will take place Sunday, November 20, 2022, at 3:00 pm, at Garden Hills Recreation Center. This opening fall concert of their 11th season will feature another of Beethoven’s string quartets, no. 15 (op. 132). ■
