An up and coming string quartet will play Beethoven this weekend in St. Petersburg. The Jasper String Quartet, winner of the 2012 Cleveland Quartet Award, consists of violinists J. Freivogel and Sae Chonabayashi, violist Sam Quintal and cellist Rachel Henderson Freivogel. They'll play the Beethoven Op. 18 quartet in C minor and the mighty Op. 131 quartet in C sharp minor (which Schubert requested to hear on his deathbed). The group — named after Jasper National Park in Canada — will also perform a pair of works by Webern, Langsamer Satz and Five Movements for String Quartet, in the concert at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Marly Room of the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. $20 and $10 for students 22 and under; museum admission included. (727) 896-2667; fine-arts.org.
