Borromeo String Quartet/ Schoenberg/ Schubert
Boston, Massachusetts
Monday, 28 November 2011 - 8:00 PM
Great artists give free concerts at New England Conservatory—simply because they teach here.

Considered "simply the best there is" by The Boston Globe, NEC's Ensemble-in-Residence the Borromeo String Quartet is one of the most sought-after string quartets in the world, each season performing more than one hundred concerts of classical and contemporary literature across three continents. Audiences and critics alike have championed the Borromeo Quartet's revealing explorations of the complete quartet cycles of Beethoven, Brahms, and Bartok, and its affinity for making challenging repertoire approachable.

Recently the Quartet was featured in the Sunday Arts section of the New York Times in a piece called "Bytes and Beethoven" that provided an in-depth portrait of their exhaustive and exhausting process of practice and performance.

The Program:

Arnold Schoenberg? String Quartet No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 7
Franz Schubert ?String Quartet in D Minor, "Death and the Maiden"
