The second concert in the series traces threads of connection from the work of Beethoven through to New York’s Julia Wolfe and Cork composer sisters Irene and Linda Buckley. There is a particular focus on his String Quartet No. 14 in C Sharp Minor, Op. 131, written in 1826, the year before Beethoven died.
