  • Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln CenterRandall Scarlata, baritone; Kristin Lee, violin; Gil Kalish, piano; Ian Rosenbaum, Ayano Kataoka, Danny Druckman, Eduardo Leandro, and Victor Caccese, percussion

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is back with an all-American program covering more than a century of ground. From the rarely heard instrumental music of H.T. Burleigh to the antics of Antheil, a series of classic and lesser-known works make the move from collection to stage. The Irving and Verna Fine Fund supports a new co-commissioned percussion quintet by George Crumb. Superb artistry marries the presentation of old and new in a delightful blend of nostalgia and looking to the future.
