Smithsonian Chamber Music Society (SCMS) audiences are privy to the unparalleled experience of being able to hear two magnificent quartets of instruments—one made by Antonio Stradivari, the other by his teacher Nicolo Amati—in this popular three-concert series.
The Axelrod Quartet continues its Haydn survey with Op. 71, No. 3, the complements of the Op. 74 set heard last year.
One hour prior to this program, Kenneth Slowik, SCMS artistic director and recipient of the 2011 Smithsonian Secretary’s Distinguished Research Lecture Award, will provide a pre-concert talk, shedding light on the glorious music and the life and times of the featured composers.
