With the retirement of Marilyn McDonald, long-serving member of both the Smithson and Axelrod quartets, the three remaining ASQ members—Marc Destrubé, James Dunham, and Kenneth Slowik—are using this season to perform with a number of violinists in programs that illustrate the breadth of the quartet repertoire while being unified through the inclusion of a Beethoven quartet in F Major on each program. Concert Program Haydn: Quartet in C Major, Op. 20, No. 2 Shostakovich: Quartet No. 4 in D Major, Op. 83 Beethoven: Quartet in F Major, Op. 18, No. 1 Program guest is violinist Shelby Yamin.
