Description

The Westport Arts Center continues its tradition of bringing the best of international talent to Fairfield County with a special concert by the acclaimed Juilliard String Quartet on Saturday, January 20 at 8 p.m. at the Arts Center.

The Boston Globe wrote of the Quartet, "The Juilliard String Quartet can plausibly be called the most important American quartet in history…” and The Broad Street Review stated, "The Juilliard still plays, magically, like a single four-voiced instrument, and the music it makes sounds like the most natural and inevitable thing in the world."

For this performance, the Juilliard String Quartet will perform a program including Beethoven’s String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op.127, Haydn’s String Quartet in G minor, Op.74, No.3 ("Rider"), and Scottish composer James MacMillan’s String Quartet No.2, "Why is this night different?" (1998).
