Ever Ours Season Program Gives Glimpses of Lesser-Known Beethoven

The upcoming 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s 1770 birth gave the Classical Music Institute (CMI) impetus to celebrate the composer’s lesser-known works for its 2019-2020 season.

“The late quartets are still considered some of the most innovative pieces of music ever written,” said Paul Montalvo, CMI artistic director.
