About This Performance

Consistently beguiling and technically impeccable, the four “extremely virtuosic and accomplished players” in the Orion Quartet “seem to have been born to be together” (Los Angeles Times). An authority on the quartets of Leon Kirchner–they’ve recorded all of them–the Orion performs the late Pulitzer Prize winner’s Bartók-influenced first quartet alongside one of Beethoven’s late masterpieces and Mozart’s virtuosic F Major Oboe Quartet with the great Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Oboe, Richard Woodhams.

Mozart: Oboe Quartet in F Major, K. 370
Kirchner: Quartet No. 1
Beethoven: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 127
