Here is a concert of Beethoven and outsized mirth! Berkeley’s John Adams has crafted a unique kind of concerto—one for string quartet and orchestra—constructed out of scherzo themes from Beethoven’s symphonies and late string quartets. As a fitting companion piece, perhaps Beethoven’s funniest work: a vast symphony inspired by the humor of Haydn and Mozart’s comic operas.
