Mostly Mozart Festival: Emerson String Quartet at Alice Tully Hall

Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center

1941 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

One of the great string quartets of our time joins with acclaimed viola virtuoso Nokuthula Ngwenyama for an invigorating evening of chamber music. From the finely wrought fantasia and fugue by Purcell and Bach, respectively, emerge the restless transcendence of Mozart’s G-minor string quintet and the smoldering drama of Mendelssohn’s late-period quintet in B-flat major. — Lincoln Center
