08-02-2019 12:00:00 08-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Juilliard String Quartet & Marc-André Hamelin, piano | 7:30 PM A sound that has just about everything one wants from a quartet, most notably precision, warmth and an electricity that conveys the excitement of playing whatever is on their stands at the moment." —The New York Times (about Juilliard String Quartet) "… full of spellbinding technique and beautiful musicality." — Atlanta Journal-Constitution (about Marc-André Hamelin) The Juilliard String Quartet brings its unparalleled artistry back to 92Y in a splendid program. The fifth of Haydn's Op. 76 quartets shows the composer struggling with the strict bonds of form; choosing radical keys and boundary-busting musical constructs. Hungarian composer György Kurtág dealt with formal strictures in different way: the six brief pieces of his Moments Musicaux do not attempt thematic unity, but instead attempt to comment individually on different emotions. Renowned pianist and 92Y favorite, Marc-André Hamelin joins the quartet in the concert's second half for a performance of Dvo?ák's lyrical, folk music-inspired piano quintet — one of the masterworks of the form. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=334795 92Y 92Y
