CMS 2013 Shostakovich Cycle Events

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has devoted its 2013 Winter Festival to the Shostakovich Quartet Cycle.

Bringing a unique perspective and searing intensity, the fiery Jerusalem Quartet performs the complete cycle in four concerts in the stunning Alice Tully Hall, the home of CMS.  In addition to these performances, the Festival includes five focused lectures by lecturer Michael Parloff, as well as a master class given by the Jerusalem Quartet concentrating on the Shostakovich Quartets.
