...and so it begins: four friends, chamber musicians - embarking on a journey to explore the string quartets of Beethoven...
David Brickman, violin
Patricia Sunwoo, violin
Melissa Matson, viola
Mimi Hwang, cello
...named after Karl Friedrich Amenda (1771-1836)...
from Maynard Solomon's Beethoven:
[Beethoven and Amenda] became such inseparable companions that when one was seen alone people would call out, "Where is the other one?"
