BERG'S LYRIC SUITE Friday, November 8, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BERG'S LYRIC SUITE

When the Viennese creator of the controversial opera Wozzeck turned his hand to the string quartet, no one knew what to expect. That Arnold Schoenberg’s famous student would compose an intricate and powerful work was assumed, but the quartet’s unprecedented intrigues would only surface in 1977 when the work’s hidden musical and numerical codes, and a vocal part, revealed Berg’s secret love affair with a married woman. Mozart’s bracing Adagio and Fugue, and Grieg’s storm-driven String Quartet, round out a delightfully turbulent program.

BACH'S BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS Friday, December 13, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BACH'S BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS

If Johann Sebastian Bach had only left the world his six Brandenburg Concertos, he would still reside in the pantheon of the great composers. With their stunning variety of novel instrumentations, their unforgettable tunes, and their irresistible energy, the Brandenburgs easily serve as a definition of what good music should be. This cycle has become so essential for New York listeners that CMS is proud to once again offer the Brandenburgs in three performances, in the incomparable acoustics of Alice Tully Hall.

BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART I Friday, February 7, 2020 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
BEETHOVEN STRING QUARTETS: PART I

Ludwig van Beethoven literally changed the course of music—not only how music sounded, but how it was performed, listened to, and used in society. Beethoven’s 16 string quartets, composed in groups corresponding to his early, middle, and late periods, leap from one level of sophistication to the next. They tell the complete story of one of history’s greatest artists, a composer possessed of an inexplicable, cosmic genius whose work continues to transcend the confines of era, style, or nationality.

The Danish String Quartet performs the quartets in the order that Beethoven composed them, between 1798 and 1826. Join us for one of music’s incomparable journeys.

MESSIAEN'S QUARTET FOR THE END OF TIME Friday, March 20, 2020 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
MESSIAEN'S QUARTET FOR THE END OF TIME

“I saw a mighty angel descend from heaven, clad in mist.” So begins Olivier Messiaen’s introduction to this work, composed and premiered in a prisoner of war camp, which transcends its medium to become one of music’s most powerful, life-changing experiences. Brahms in his most introspective mood, and Stravinsky nodding to the Classical style, lead to Messiaen’s mesmerizing, mystical depiction of the apocalypse, amid bird calls, the sound of seven trumpets, and a final, hypnotic affirmation of immortality.

MOZART'S PIANO QUARTET IN G MINOR Friday, April 3, 2020 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
MOZART'S PIANO QUARTET IN G MINOR

The piano quartet, consisting of piano, violin, viola, and cello, was basically invented by Mozart. His two immensely popular works in the genre paved the way for a far-reaching succession of piano quartets by major composers, all the way into the 20th century. With Mozart’s remarkable innovation to open this concert, contrasting works by two of the greatest German composers follow, offering a bird’s-eye view of a rich, 100-year musical landscape.

SHOSTAKOVICH'S PIANO QUINTET Friday, April 24, 2020 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
SHOSTAKOVICH'S PIANO QUINTET

Our milestone work by Shostakovich holds a rightful place in the line of great piano quintets going back to Schumann’s of 1842. Combining the rigor of Bach with the powerful energy and extreme irony of Soviet era music, the work is a milestone not only of chamber music but also of Shostakovich’s career: it won him the coveted Stalin Prize. This essential quintet is accompanied by a youthful Beethoven sonata and Mendelssohn’s appropriately tempestuous First Piano Trio.
