The Cypress String Quartet recently performed their final concerts together after a 20-year collaboration. As a culmination of the group’s work, they have released a CD set of the complete Beethoven string quartets.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with violinist Tom Stone and cellist Jennifer Kloetzel about the history of the San Francisco-based ensemble, their accomplishments and what's in store for the future. We talked quite a bit about the early Beethoven quartets, which were the last they recorded.

Enjoy the excerpts from our interview!

Yours in good music,
