Hear the exquisite beauty and brilliance of Bach and Beethoven at the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa as Symphony musicians play from the Baroque and Romantic periods. The acoustics and the setting of the historic building makes the music come alive!

You'll marvel at Bach's Partita No. 2 in D Minor, a complex, 30-minute piece, played by soloist and Concertmaster Brynn Albanese. Played in five movement, the Partita corresponds to the dances of the time, usually listed by their French names - Allemonde, Courante, Sarabande, Gigue and Chaconne. The last movement, the Chaconne, is as long as the first four movements combined and is said to be 'the greatest structure for solo violin that exists.' This piece has not been played locally for over 10 years and is sure to be a treat for those in attendance.

Beethoven's String Quartet No. 7, Op. 59 No.1 is one of four quartets written in 1806, commissioned by the Russian Ambassador, Prince Andrey Razumovsky, in Vienna.​ Structurally, this quartet is longer than Beethoven's earlier works lasting over 40-minutes. Written in four movements, the last movement is built around Russian themes to ingratiate its patron.

Quartet: Emily Lanzone, Grace Seng, David Hennessee, Barbara Hunter-Spencer
