The Indianapolis Quartet returns to celebrate first-published works in the genre, from Beethoven at the very end of the 18th century to Shostakovich in 1938. Beethoven’s F-Major Quartet, Op. 18, No. 1, features an impassioned slow movement inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; the optimistic First Quartet of Dmitri Shostakovich recalls bright moods associated with spring. The evening concludes with the 1893 String Quartet of Claude Debussy, a work growing out of 19th-century French traditions infused with the composer’s remarkably original harmonic thinking.
