"Some of my very favorite music is the kind which makes me sit up straight and pay close attention, because it is either so beautiful, so riveting, or so full of surprises," Chamber Music Society Co-Artistic Director David Finckel says in this week's program.

Such is the music on this concert from the Chamber Music Society, which pairs works of equal intensity composed in two opposite musical languages.

Program details:

Schubert: Fantasie in F minor for Piano, Four Hands, D. 940, Op. 103
— Gilbert Kalish, Leon Fleisher, piano.

Bartók - Quartet No. 5 in B-flat major for Strings, Sz. 102, BB 110
— Escher String Quartet.
