Check out what's going on in NYC this weekend, and take your pick from all of the fantastic options.
Tetzlaff Quartet - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
Three Viennese composers put their personal stamp on the string quartet. Mozart's is one of six he dedicated to Haydn, paying homage to the master while also looking ahead to the dramatic and harmonically daring quartets of Schubert. Schubert's grandly scaled string quartet is a work of profound depth and a vast range of emotions. If much of the power of Schubert's quartet is found in its great breadth, Berg's compels with late-Romantic luxury.
