Hailed as “one of the best young string quartets’’ by Gramophone, the Doric String Quartet has emerged as a leading British ensemble of its generation. The quartet had our audience on its feet during their 2017 Vermont debut, and their performance of Beethoven’s first and Bartók’s third quartets will most certainly evoke a similar reaction this season. This powerhouse evening concludes with Elgar’s Piano Quintet in A Major, with acclaimed pianist Jonathan Biss, who has served as the Marlboro Music Festival’s co-artistic director in recent years.
Pre-concert lecture by Professor of Music Larry Hamberlin, 6:30 PM, Room 125.
