Pacifica Quartet 
Returning for their 14th season at Music in the Vineyards, the Pacifica Quartet present two works from our 25 for 25 list. Shostakovich’s 15 quartets are a fascinating chronicle of his lifetime development and his 2nd Quartet comes at the halfway point of his life. Beethoven’s 16 quartets offer a similar insight into his psyche. His Quartet op. 59 no. 3 —nicknamed Hero— reflects its theme of triumph over adversity.
