Arts in the Afternoon: The Three Bs: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms

Apr 15, 2020


In the world of classical music, Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms are known as the Three B’s. These three masterful composers spanned two full centuries, producing some of the most fabulous music ever composed, whether for large groups or small ones. Both of the later gentlemen were influenced by those who came before them, making a program of works by all three a marvelous exploration in how musical styles evolved from the early 1700s to the late 1800s. Join music historian Betsy Schwarm, violist Phillip Stevens, and friends from the Colorado Symphony for quartets by three of the greatest masters of music!
