Carnegie Hall Presents

Chamber Sessions I

Sterling ensembles and maverick musicians shed new light on quintessential works from the string repertoire. The Tetzlaff Quartet interprets Haydn, Bartók, and Beethoven; the Takács Quartet embarks on a complete cycle of Bartók’s string quartets; Leonidas Kavakos and Enrico Pace chart a course through Beethoven’s complete sonatas for violin and piano; and Ensemble ACJW performs under the baton of David Robertson.
