Description

Featuring a world premiere by composer Tamar Muskal based on "Farewell Letters to the Beloved One" by Hanoch Levin (and translated from the Hebrew by Chaya Galai), the evening pairs this haunting new work with Leoš Janáček's "manifesto on love," the Quartet No. 2, Intimate Letters. The Muskal was commissioned by the Quartet in collaboration with Symphony Space.

"As virtuosic show, Shelton's performance was memorable, but as interpretive and musical exploration, its scope seemed limitless." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
