What's New: 3 Bs For 4 Voices

We’ll hear 3 Bs: Brahms, Beethoven, and Bartok, for Four Voices: new releases from the Miroand ArielString Quartets on today’s What’s New.

Beethoven’s Opus 131 was one of the last quartets he wrote, and the next to last to be published. It was used throughout the movie A Late Quartet with Christopher Walken, and also in the HBO Series A Band of Brothers.
Brahms was slow writing his first two string quartets, turning 40 years old before they were published.
Both performing groups featured today are in residence at higher learning institutions.

What’s New is a production of WBAA Classical, a listener supported broadcast service of Purdue University.
