Beethoven's 'Serioso' with the 2023 Advanced String Quartets
The 2023 Advanced String Quartets from Interlochen Arts Camp visited Studio A to record music of Beethoven.
Every summer, Interlochen Arts Camp's Advanced String Quartet program welcomes sixteen high school musicians who focus on learning complete string quartets.
The students are divided into four quartets, and each quartet learns one movement of a string quartet by a major composer.
During the first half of camp this summer, the Advanced String Quartet students learned a quartet by Franz Joseph Haydn.
During the second half of camp, they learned a quartet by Ludwig van Beethoven.
Hear each quartet perform its individual movement of the Beethoven quartet on demand below.
