Carnegie Hall Presents

Quartets Plus

The string quartet has a rich history dating back to 18th-century royal courts, running through the Romantic era, and on to today. Quartets Plus puts you in the midst of this tradition: Mozart and Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schoenberg are all here. Stay after the concert for a Salon Encores reception, and get together with people who love music as much as you do.
