2015–2016 Winter Series

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

For the second concert of Music@Menlo’s Winter Series, a powerhouse quartet of artists from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center—Music@Menlo favorites Gilles Vonsattel, Arnaud Sussmann, Paul Neubauer, and Paul Watkins—ensures enraptured music making at the highest level. Antonín Dvořák’s magisterial Piano Quartet forms the anchor of this sumptuous program, preceded by Dohnányi’s elegant Serenade and Beethoven’s Opus 16, performed here in its version for piano and strings.
