Then & Now
Join us for our first concert of 2023, an exploration of past and present, early and late. The first half of this concert features two Haydn quartets: one from his opus 9 set, which he considered his first mature group of string quartets, and one of his masterpieces written a quarter century later. Tomeka Reid (recent MacArthur Fellow) is one of the most exciting voices writing today, and Mendelssohn’s exuberant D Major Quartet closes this show with a bang!
