Carnegie Hall Live: Belcea Quartet

Airs Thursday, November 8 at 11:00 a.m.  Hurricane Sandy and a dangerously broken construction crane dangling over West 57th Street in Manhattan closed Carnegie Hall for several days.  But America’s most famous stage re-opens with a live concert featuring the phenomenal Belcea Quartet. Join us for this broadcast of Carnegie Hall Live with the Belcea Quartet, a group that approaches everything it plays with "timeless daring" (The New York Times). The quartet continues its three-concert focus on Beethoven's epoch-making late quartets. This program features Beethoven's E-flat–Major Quartet, Op. 127, the first of the five final quartets that changed the string quartet genre forever.  Then we'll hear the Beethoven B-flat–Major Quartet, Op 130. Fred Child and Jeff Spurgeon will host.
