The “rich-toned” Jupiter Quartet (New York Times) has established itself as one of the nation’s eminent ensembles. Frequently heard at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, this “exemplary” quartet brings “verve and polish” (Washington Post) to whatever it performs — which here includes Beethoven’s profound Quartet, op. 127, Janáček’s passionate Quartet No. 2 (“Intimate Letters”), and a new work by Pierre Jalbert, “an acknowledged chamber-music master” (New Yorker).
Beethoven — String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat Major, op. 127
Janáček — String Quartet No. 2 (“Intimate Letters”)
Pierre Jalbert — Piano Quintet

Most of our 300 seats are for those who just show up - but as a courtesy to our friends who work late, we've set aside 100 advance reservations for general admission. All other seats are 'first come, first served' and are available as early as 6:45 pm, when the doors open. Note that reservations are good for entrance only, not for specific seats. Reservations are void after 7:20pm.
If reservations are gone, don't worry - just show up! It is rare for Music Mondays to turn anyone away.
