Carnegie Hall Presents

Chamber Sessions II

String quartets lead the way in this series. While the Belcea and Artemis quartets perform favorites of the genre—two late Beethoven works, and valedictory music by Mendelssohn and Schubert—the Elias String Quartet teams with Jonathan Biss for a chamber version of a Mozart piano concerto.
