MOZARTQuartet No. 16 in E-flat Major, K. 428
BERGQuartet, Op. 3
SCHUBERTQuartet No. 15 in G Major, D. 887

Violinist Christian Tetzlaff returns for a rare appearance with his namesake string quartet—making its eagerly anticipated Cal Performances debut—in a program of three landmark works that showcase the ensemble's vast expressive range. Mozart's series of string quartets dedicated to Haydn are the pinnacle of melodic ingenuity and classical refinement; nearly 50 years later, Schubert wrote his massive and mercurial final quartet, just a few years before his death in 1828. Written in 1910, Berg's complex and technically demanding Quartet became a seminal work of the Second Viennese School.
