The performances will trace the teachers and influential composers who inspired and pushed Ludwig van Beethoven’s innovations.

The program will include Haydn’s String Quartet, Op. 103; Beethoven’s String Trio Prelude and Fugue in E minor (from a Sketch for Albrechtsberger); Emmanuel Aloys Förster’s String Quartet in D minor, Op. 21 No. 2; J.S. Bach’s Contrapunctus 14 from “Art of Fugue”; and Beethoven’s String Quartet in G major, Op. 18, No. 2.

Performers include Christina Day Martinson and Jesse Irons on violin, Jason Fisher on viola, and Timothy Merton on cello.

Founded in 1997, the Sarasa Ensemble is a performing collective, presenting music spanning the 17th to the 21st centuries, on both period and modern instruments. Sarasa has played throughout New England and has toured Ireland, Cuba, and India.
