LARK Quartet

Now & Then: A Celebration of 30 Years

Weill Recital Hall
This concert celebrates the past and present of The LARK Quartet through music old and new and members original and present. In keeping with the tradition of LARK to broaden the chamber music repertory through diverse commissions, they perform both the world premiere of Andrew Waggoner’s Octet and the New York premiere of John Harbison’s String Quartet No. 6. To contrast the ‘Now’, they move back in time to Debussy’s String Quartet and the Presto of Mendelssohn’s Octet.
