What do you do when your G string breaks 4 minutes before the end of an all-Beethoven concert? One possibility is to just keep going, with the three remaining strings suddenly very sharp and treacherous navigational challenges ahead. The string breaks 5 minutes into the video. My thanks to Janet Guggenheim for her brilliant and spirited music making, to Tom Emerson for his stellar video work, and to Rod Evenson for a beautiful audio recording. From a concert at the Old Church in Portland, Oregon on November 2, 2015.
