About the Workshop

The Manhattan String Quartet is excited to offer a workshop on Beethoven’s Quartet in E Minor, opus 59#2 from Sunday, June 25th to Saturday, July 1st, 2023.   We will be at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, where the quartet is held this conference for many years, focusing on a single masterpiece from the quartet canon.  Places are still available for a few violinists and violists.  Matched-level participants are placed in quartets which rotate daily.  Each day includes four hours of intensive coaching (movement by movement), a lecture by noted theoretician and musicologist David Clampitt and illustrated by the quartet, and plenty of time for free-lance readings of other repertoire.  A special event this year will be a talk by Jan Swafford, composer and author of the definitive “Beethoven–Anguish and Triumph”.
