Can’t make Sunday’s New York recital debut by the New York Philharmonic String Quartet at 92nd Street Y? Or just want to stay in now that winter has finally come? Watch it live online.
The concert, which is on Sunday at 3:00 PM, will be streamed live at 92Y On Demand and on our Facebook page.
The program is Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 4; Dvořák’s String Quartet in F major, American; and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in F minor. Formed in January 2017, the New York Philharmonic String Quartet comprises Concertmaster Frank Huang, Principal Associate Concertmaster Sheryl Staples, Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps, and Principal Cello Carter Brey.
The quartet made its debut in March 2017 as the solo ensemble in John Adams’s Absolute Jest and reprised its performance on the Orchestra’s EUROPE / SPRING 2017 tour. The group also performed during the Philharmonic’s annual Bravo! Vail summer residency, in July 2017. The New York Times called the ensemble “marvelous” and The Times called the players “exemplary” in their reviews of the performances of Absolute Jest in New York and London, respectively.
