The HSQ Plays Beethoven

This week's episode of Classical Music Amarillo will feature the Harrington String Quartet performing two compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Tune in to Classical Music Amarillo this week to hear the Panhandle’s own Harrington String Quartet perform two works by Ludwig van Beethoven, a German composer of the nineteenth century who made a name for himself in 19th-century Vienna, the center of musical culture in Europe at the time.
Tune in this week for one of Beethoven’s Op. 18 quartets, which was composed during his early career and sounds quite Classical in character, followed by his Op. 130 string quartet, which was composed near the end of Beethoven's rather short life — an incredibly innovative composition in the 19th century.

HPPR's new host for Classical Music Amarillo, Dr. Kimberly Hieb, brings her rich knowledge of music history to our regional classical music program.
