"For a chamber music lover there can be no better place to see and hear a ... quartet than in a small...chamber! The Metropolitan Playhouse in the East Village was the perfect venue." (Times Square Chronicles, December 4, 2012.)
The concert is part of the MUSIC AT METROPOLITAN series. This ongoing series, now in its eighth season, presents a diverse collection of musicians and ensembles in Metropolitan's intimate home, whose acoustics and size are ideally suited to chamber concerts and solo artists' recitals.
