Beethoven’s wrote his String Quartet Op. 132 late in life, after recovering from a near-fatal illness. This “Holy Song of Thanksgiving” is a profoundly personal reflection on mortality and one of the most revered monuments of the chamber music repertoire. Resilience in the face of hardship and directly facing death are also two essential elements of the Black experience. Grammy Award-winning bass-baritone, Dashon Burton, will offer one of the musical monuments of the USA: African American spirituals.
