PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society brings the Tokyo Quartet to the Kimmel Center’s intimate Perelman Theater on Sunday, January 20th.
Listen to the podcast below…
The Society’s Miles Cohen, says it’s a bittersweet occasion for the Tokyo Quartet, “because this will be their last concert at the Kimmel Center. This is their last season performing concerts — they’ve been around for 44 years.”
And they’ve performed with the Chamber Music Society for 25 of them.
“They’re an integral part of what makes the Chamber Music Society what we are today,” Cohen explains.
The program will include works by Mozart and Bartok, “and then they end with two guest artists: The violist of the former Guarneri Quartet in Michael Tree, and the cellist Marcy Rosen, who was in the Mendelssohn String Quartet for many years. And they’ll perform Brahms’ G Major Sextet, and that’s a work that’s super romantic.”
