Elm City String Quartet Concert #2: Brahms & Britten 🎻

November 23, 2022 @ 7:30 pm November 27, 2022 @ 9:00 pm

The Elm City String Quartet continues their season with two absolute staples in the quartet repertoire. If you love immersive and expansive masterpieces, this concert is for you.  The concert begins with the second string quartet of Johannes Brahms, which is an A-minor feat of musical transcendence.  The second piece in the program is Benjamin Britten’s second string quartet: a meditative, intricate, and brazen musical journey.
