Palm Beach Chamber Music Season '24 - Part 2

 Flagler Museum 


The night's program included:

String Quartet in G major, Op. 33 No. 5 Hob.III:41, Joseph Haydn

Selected Contrapuncti, The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080, Johann Sebastian Bach

String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132, Ludwig van Beethoven

Wow - Haydn, Bach and Beethoven 
in one evening... 


The eclectic and highly polished Beo String Quartet, founded in 2015, has created a niche for itself as a daring, genre-defying ensemble. Rigorously trained in the classical tradition, violinists Jason Neukom and Andrew Giordano, violist Sean Neukom, and cellist Ryan Ash also know their way around contemporary expression, including the use of electronics, live sound processing, and spatial audio manipulation. Their performances of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, or Shostakovich have been compared to those of the best among 21st century international string quartets.

With an astonishing 65 world premieres to its credit and 140 concert works played throughout the United States, South America, and Europe, the iconoclastic Beo String Quartet does what it loves best: performing, teaching, outreaching, composing, recording, and having fun with music from the iconic (Beethoven) to today’s most exciting composers (Gabriela Ortiz, Missy Mazzoli) to popular styles. Beo has built its own recording studio and launched its own recording label, NeuKraft Records.

The name “Beo” derives from Latin, meaning “to make happy."

I was "Made Happy"
