Borromeo String Quartet

Weill Recital Hall
During the Borromeo String Quartet’s recent Bartók marathon, The Philadelphia Inquirer said that the musicians “performed at a high standard that brought you so deeply into the music’s inner workings that you wondered if your brain could take it all in.” Bartók is on the bill at Carnegie Hall, as well as Shostakovich and Britten. Shostakovich’s enigmatic String Quartet No. 3 shifts between high spirits and the darkly serious. Britten’s String Quartet No. 2, written to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Henry Purcell, closes with a brilliant set of variations.
