Epic Beethoven Cycle in Portland
The Pacifica Quartet has performed for the Portland, OR, Friends of Chamber Music almost annually for the last decade and in that time has created a real relationship with the audience. This relationship is of course based on the Pacifica’s extremely high level of playing – a constant for the Quartet – as well as a deep trust on both sides. The Friends trust the Pacifica to challenge them as listeners, and the Pacifica trusts the audience to dive in headfirst. This is why the Pacifica’s recent complete Beethoven cycle, performed over just one week, was such a great success!
