Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center: Sensational Strings
Tuesday, November 10, 2020
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents Sensational Strings. The unusual instrumentation of this sextet offers listeners a depth of sound and a wealth of texture unlike any other instrumental grouping. Sensational Strings will feature two works—one by beloved composer Antonín Dvořák alongside a piece by 20th-century master Erwin Schulhoff—both containing rigorous technical demands and emotional depth. Add to this Beethoven’s Quintet for Strings in C minor, a shocking sensation in its day, and listeners will be astounded at what an unconventional grouping of strings can do in the hands of some of today’s best chamber musicians.
In the event this performance is postponed, all tickets issued, including those booked as part of a 2020–21 season, series or Create Your Own subscription package, will be valid for admission to the rescheduled engagement. Patrons will be promptly alerted to any schedule changes should they occur.
