The Brookhaven Friends of Music presents the Lydian String Quartet at 3:00 pm in the Performance Hall and streaming. Kevin Williams in the Chicago Sun-Times noted that “the Lydian Quartet plays …with a precision and involvement marking them as among the world’s best quartets.” The program begins with Beethoven’s Quartet in f minor, Op. 95, called by the composer “quartetto serioso”. Indeed, the explosive beginning of the work, in addition to the minor mode, establishes at the outset its passionate affect. This piece is followed by Ravel’s Quartet in F Major, an early work composed while the composer was still a student at the Paris Conservatory and one of the most widely performed chamber music works today.
