Alice Harlow - Portsmouth, NH 1978
L.Beethoven/ Jessie Marino
String Quartet

performed by Jack Quartet and Spektral Quartet

Alice Harlow was born in Deerfield, MA in 1946. She worked primarily as a pastry chef and managed her own bakery, the Loaf and Ladle,  after moving with her family to Portsmouth, NH. Alice, a self taught painter and amateur chorister spent her time outside of the bakery, depicting in oil and pastel, scenes  of New England beach towns and pouring over the scores of Ludwig van Beethoven. This piece, written in 1978 is a combination of these two passions.
