About This Performance

Hailed by the New York Times as “something extraordinary,” the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. Returning to Philadelphia for its fourth PCMS appearance in six years, this young foursome–currently Artists-in-Residence at Harvard University–offers a pair of masterworks by Beethoven and Schumann alongside a set of Kurtág microludes–the endlessly fascinating colors and gestures of which the Parkers studied with the composer himself.

Szymanowski: Quartet in C Major, Op. 37
Beethoven: Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95, “Serioso”
Schumann: Quartet in A Minor, Op. 41, No. 1
