This February, Chamber Music Tulsa is hosting an extraordinary set of performances by the Miró Quartet in which the group will play all of Beethoven’s quartets. This is an extremely rare treat and it will take place here in Tulsa across six days from February 17-26. In order to help the Tulsa-area community better understand this music and its importance, the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities is partnering with CTO to sponsor a pair of talks on Beethoven and his world.
The first of these is linked to our food theme and will take place Thursday, November 17 at 7:00pm in Tyrrell Hall. In “Having a Taste for Beethoven,” Dr. Sanna Pederson, the Mavis C. Pittman Professor of Music the University of Oklahoma, will discuss the develop of taste—both flavorful and aesthetic—in the Enlightenment era while exploring broadly the the music and life of the famed composer. The lecture is free and open to everyone, so take a moment to come and learn more about Beethoven and his genius.
Tickets for the February concerts are available through Chamber Music Tulsa.
