The Sitka Summer Music Festival began with gusto this week. For the first half of the month-long chamber music residency, the Cypress String Quartet will be performing all of Beethoven’s string quartets. These performances are extra special because they are among the last for the San Francisco-based group, which has been performing for two decades.
The Sitka Summer Music Festival is here! Tom Stone and Jennifer Kletzel of the Cypress String Quartet, a San-Francisco based quartet, talks about playing the entire Beethoven string quartet cycle during their two weeks in Sitka and their final two weeks playing together as a group.
