Lattimore performs at Stage Eighteen in downtown Fayetteville this Saturday, June 2. 

As part of their ongoing project to record all of the Beethoven String Quartets, the Miro Quartet tackles String Quartet No.14, Op 131- a piece from one of the most tumultuous periods in the great composer's life.
