Under the Influence: Shakespeare's World

Prelude Performance by Pelia Quartet · 6:00 PM

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

What creative genius’ work has permeated the culture and had more influence than that of the Bard himself? Join us for this intermission-free Wednesday evening event as we enjoy music from Shakespeare’s time and hear some of his most famous words composed into song. Following Korngold’s popular incidental music for the comedy Much Ado About Nothing, composed in 1920, we conclude with Beethoven’s “Ghost Piano Trio, which came out of sketches for an opera based on Macbeth that he never completed. Stay after the concert for a special event in the Wu Tsai QRT.yrd to enjoy more music and a feast featuring the best of San Diego’s culinary and craft cocktail scene!

Join us for the musical prelude with Pelia Quartet for a performance of Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 74 “Harp.”
