Kohl Mansion goes virtual
Music@Kohl Mansion continues its quest to bring the best in international chamber music to Bay Area audiences. Under executive director Patricia Kristof Moy, this Virtual at Kohl season — the organization’s 38th campaign overall — opens with the Alexander String Quartet playing Beethoven’s monumental String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat major, Op. 130 (Sunday and Jan. 28). According to music series organizers, the concert will mark one of the last chances to hear the quartet in action with founding violist Paul Yarbrough, who has announced he will retire after this season. Still to come: Scotland’s Maxwell Quartet (Feb. 28 and March 4), the Ying Quartet (March 14 and 18), the French-Belgian Quatuor Danel, with Pascal Moraguès (April 11 and 15), and the Horszowski Trio (May 9 and 13).
