There’s the remarkable Kronos Quartet in a program that includes the New York premieres of works by Derek Clarke and Aleksandra Vrebalov. L’Arpeggiata puts its unique interpretive signature on music of Purcell. There’s also the 50th-anniversary concert by the Meredith Monk ensemble in honor of Monk’s groundbreaking career.
