Close Encounters With Music

by The Staff on March 20, 2014


The Close Encounters With Music series in Great Barrington welcomes the Linden String Quartet this Saturday night. They will present a program of music by Brahms and Tchaikovsky.

Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence will be the centerpiece of the evening. Like any unhappy fellow from the cold, cold north trying to get over a bad (OK, disastrous) marriage, Tchaikovsky recovered his enthusiasm for life and music in the warmer climes of Italy. This new happiness is reflected in the piece.

The quartet consists of Sarah McElravy and Catherine Cosbey, violins; Eric Wong, viola; and Felix Umansky, cello. There will also be special guests.

The Linden String Quartet will perform Saturday (March 22) at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center (14 Castle St., Great Barrington, Mass.) at 6 PM. Tickets are $45 and $25. For more info, call the box office at (413) 528-0100.
