BPL Presents classical interludes music


The Cassatt String Quartet was the first quartet chosen for Juilliard’s Young Artists Quartet Program. Since then, they have performed at New York’s Alice Tully Hall, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood Music Theater, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Theatre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, and the Beijing Central Conservatory in China. At the Library of Congress, the Cassatt performed on the library’s matched quartet of Stradivarius instruments, and they performed the complete Beethoven Quartet cycle three times at the University at Buffalo.

The Cassatt has been heard on NPR’s “Performance Today”, Boston’s WGBH, and New York’s WQXR and WNYC. They have 30 recordings and were named three times to Alex Ross’ 10 best classical recordings of the year in The New Yorker magazine.

This concert was curated by Peter Weitzner as part of BPL Chamber Players.

Classical Interludes is made possible in part with support by Dr. Beverly S. Jacobs, Jane Brody Engquist and many generous individuals.
