The Escher Quartet – Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy

The Escher Quartet

They are joined by cellist and CEWM artistic director Yehuda Hanani and violist Daniel Panner for the magnificent Brahms String Sextet No. 1, which entered popular culture via the soundtrack for various films (Louis Mall’s “Les Amants,” The Piano Teacher, and in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”!). Brahms regarded the string quartet as a hallowed genre and treated it with the same reverence he famously held for the symphony. The Debussy String Quartet is nothing less than a ground-breaking work, with all that Impressionism represents. The program begins with Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 2, lyrical, playful, and dedicated to Haydn.

Close Encounters With Music will partner with the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center and Classical WMHT-FM to present the series of three concerts October through December filmed live from the Mahaiwe stage and available for everyone to access—The Escher has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textual clarity with a rich, blended sound. A link to stream the event will be available seven days before the premiere. Find the link at or on our @closeencounterswithmusic Facebook page.
