Musicians from American Symphony Orchestra performs pillars from the string quartet repertoire: Haydn’s Quartet op 76 No 5, nicknamed at various points in history “Largo” for its particularly comforting but melancholy slow movement, and Debussy’s lush and thrilling String Quartet.
This performance is part of a free chamber music series in partnership with Bryant Park with programs curated by ASO musicians. Music-lovers will find a limited number of first-come, first-served chairs set up to enjoy an after-work respite with live music. COVID-19 vaccinations and masks are not currently required but are encouraged for audiences attending these events. Bryant Park will continue to follow New York City and New York State COVID-19 guidelines.
The ASO’s Chamber Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
