The performances had the collegiality and ease of great chambermusic playing.” —The New York Times

It was performed with all the vitality, incisive attention to detail and spontaneity one has come to associate with the Chamber Music Society brand.” —Chicago Tribune

Chamber music well-done is an intimate dialogue among musicians. No one does this better than the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.” —Berkshire Fine Arts

Not only is the level of playing superb, but the ambiance of Tully Hall is the perfect temple in which to experience such artistry: spacious enough for the music to envelop us but so intimate that we can read the musicians’ expressions and watch with delight their subtle interactions.” —Oberon’s Grove
