Critically acclaimed as one of America's leading ensembles, The Manhattan String Quartet is celebrating its 41st season. Hailed by Michael Steinberg of the Boston Globe as “a national treasure”, the ensemble has appeared throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico and South America. Well known for their performances of 20th-century “classics”, the Manhattan String Quartet has established a significant international reputation as today’s pre-eminent interpreter of the fifteen string quartets of Dmitri Shostakovich.

The MSQ's second appearance on our Spring series features John Manasse, an internationally-recognized soloist and chamber musican whose performances are characterized by a uniquely glorious sound and charismatic performing style. The program contrasts the contrapuntal sophistication of Mozart's Quartet in A Major with the sublime and lyrical Clarinet Quintet.
