The Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society is arguably the leading chamber music organization in the country and this Tuesday evening, they're presenting the world-renowned St. Lawrence String Quartet, in from Canada, to share with us tales old (Joseph Haydn's Quartet in C major for Strings, Hob. III:32, Op. 20, No. 2) and new (John Adams' Quartet No. 2 for Strings) and also relatively-old-but-not-Joseph-Haydn-old (Camille Saint-Saëns's first string quartet in E minor).

And what's more, they've given Groupmuse a limited stack of ridiculously discounted tickets $15(!!!) instead of $50+.

So front-load your week with depth, substance, transcendent beauty, and all that other good stuff we're always talking about at Groupmuse.

The performance is happening at the legendary Alice Tully Hall, so feel free to grab a bite and a glass of wine beforehand in their gorgeous atrium bar/café - American Table - and have a great Night Out.

"It was the St. Lawrence String Quartet that premièred John Adams’s “Absolute Jest,” a quasi-concerto for string quartet and orchestra in which he tinkers with fragments from string quartets by Beethoven. Now, under the Chamber Music Society’s auspices, the Stanford University-based supergroup performs Adams’s Second Quartet, another piece designed as a radical homage to the Viennese titan. The program opens with Haydn’s genial Quartet in C Major, Op. 20, No. 2, and concludes with Saint-Saëns’s gracious Quartet No. 1 in E Minor."
-The New Yorker

"Brilliant...the performance showed not only virtuosity, intelligence and imagination but also extraordinary passion." -The New York Times
