Harlem String Quartet with Pianist Misha Dichter
Wednesday, June 15, 2011
The rising stars of the Harlem String Quartet meet with august pianist, Misha Dichter, in this mixed consort. They pull classics from composers across the Atlantic, in a program diverse in geography as well as style. The HSQ stay true to their namesake with a famous tune by Billy Strayhorn, who was Duke Ellington’s right-hand man. Meanwhile, Dichter draws half the group into a trio by his homeland’s most famous composer, Chopin.
