About This Performance

The fast-rising, NYC-based Escher Quartet currently serves as quartet-in-residence at The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where last season they presented a critically acclaimed three-concert series featuring the quartets of Benjamin Britten. Championed by the Emerson Quartet, the group has received accolades for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. Samuel Rhodes—former violist of the Juilliard Quartet—here unites with the Eschers to perform Bruckner’s F Major Quintet, a work that is little-known yet of the highest quality and expressiveness.
