Legendary pianist Menahem Pressler and the extraordinary New Orford String Quartet complete our 2013-14 Concert Series season with an adventurous programme of Vivier (String Quartet No. 1), Beethoven (String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat major, Op. 74), and Schumann (Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44). “Menahem Pressler’s joyous pianism… is from another age and is a virtually forgotten sensibility. He is a national treasure.” (Los Angeles Times)
