Camerata San Antonio presents chamber music of the highest caliber to their many and diverse classical music-loving audiences, they are equally committed to providing educational concerts and musical enrichments to San Antonio's public school students.
Composers often wrestle with the masters of the past, especially Beethoven, when they set out to write their own string quartets. Caroline Shaw's Blueprint and Schnittke's Third String Quartet both deal with Beethoven in their won ways, with respects paid to Schubert, Bartok, Tim Burton and Orlando DiLasso along the way. Beethoven himself is represented on this program with his first published string quartet, the Op 18, No. 1.
