For the third concert in its current season, the Spokane String Quartet pays homage to one of classical music’s undeniable greats, Ludwig van Beethoven. The quartet musicians — all four are also members of the Spokane Symphony Orchestra — are to perform the composer’s string quartet No. 16 in F Major, the last major work he completed, in 1826, and also considered more lighthearted than the rest of his later work. The four string players are joined on stage by guest pianist Karen Savage for two piano sonatas. The evening’s program also features Savage for 20th century Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet in G Minor.
