The Frederick and Alice Slee Beethoven String Quartet Cycle Concert Series, 1955-2018

The new exhibition in the Music Library, The Frederick and Alice Slee Beethoven String Quartet Cycle Concert Series, 1955-2018, commemorates the University at Buffalo Music Department’s 63rd presentation of the Slee Beethoven string quartet cycle. This annual series of concerts, started in 1955, is devoted to the performance of all of Ludwig van Beethoven’s works for string quartet. This year’s cycle will be performed by the Pacifica Quartet February 15-18 in Slee Hall/Lippes Concert Hall. The Slee Beethoven quartet cycle is very likely the only concert series in the world to present the cycle of Beethoven string quartets on an annual basis.

The exhibition presents images of some of the sixty-two string quartet ensembles that have performed on the series at UB as well as background about the origins of the series funded by a bequest by Frederick Caldecott Slee and his wife, Alice.

Location: Music Library, February 12 - June 1, 2018
