On Thurs­day, July 30, at 6 p.m., they of­fer a fur­ther Beethoven quar­tet, his Four­teenth, in C-sharp mi­nor (Op. 131), to cap off a lineup in which oth­ers play Beethoven’s C-mi­nor String Trio and Prokofiev’s Vi­o­lin Sonata No. 2. All of these con­certs are held in the St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium of the New Mexico Mu­seum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.).
