Eckart Runge, founding cellist for the Artemis Quartet, and his duo partner Jacque Ammon have been breaking down concert barriers for more than 25 years. This genre-defying concert juxtaposes Beethoven with more contemporary revolutionary icons such as Paul McCartney, Miles Davis, Piazzolla, Chick Corea, and more!
