Experience music as the composers would have heard it when the preeminent period-performance string quartet joins the leading fortepianist of our day for a program that features an arrangement of a Mozart concerto and a Schubert masterpiece. The Chiaroscuro Quartet has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame based on the “radiant refinement of their sound and their suave sensitivity of phrasing” (BBC Music), while Kristian Bezuidenhout—“a musician who could probably conjure sweet music from a piece of dry toast” (The Times, London)—displays his trademark virtuosity and taste.
