The Tokyo String Quartet will present a program of classical music on March 23 at 7:30 p.m. at The Robert L. & Elizabeth S. Cole Auditorium at Richmond Community College in Hamlet.
The Quartet is part of the artist-in-residence at Yale University’s School of Music.
“This is our first classical offering this season,” said Cole Auditorium Director Joey Bennett. “In addition to helping the quartet celebrate their 40th anniversary, we are happy to bring a concert of classical music from composers that our audience will recognize.”
Scheduled selections, which are subject to change, include Schubert: Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 168, D.112; Berg: Quartet for Strings, Op.
3; Beethoven: Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2. The Quartet performs on the four Stradivarius instruments known as the “Paganini Quartet.” The instruments are on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation.
