Alexander String Quartet

Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC) is an active presence in the heart of Manhattan. Located just east of the Chelsea neighborhood, BPAC presents world class Classical music, Jazz and Pop, in addition to theater, dance, literary and discussion programs. BPAC's 2018/19 music programs feature pianist Guy Livingston's "Dada at the Movies"; solo recitals by violinist Tessa Lark, cellist Joshua Roman, and baritone Brian Mulligan; chamber ensembles Israeli Chamber Project, Alexander String Quartet, and the Canadian Guitar Quartet; jazz by the Aaron Diehl Trio; the NY premiere of the opera Bound performed by Fresh Squeezed Opera; and the return of the PROTOTYPE Festival with the U.S. premiere of Philip Venables' bombshell opera, 4:48 Psychosis.

This Thursday, May 2, the Baruch Performing Arts Center presents the acclaimed Alexander String Quartet performing music by Mozart, Penderecki, and Dvořák. The work by Penderecki, "Poland's greatest living composer" (The Guardian), provides a window into the composer's memories, including a gypsy violin tune he heard his father play. Also on the program is Mozart's String Quartet No. 16 in E flat major, K. 428 and Dvořák's String Quartet No. 12. Nicknamed the "American Quartet", the piece was written in 1893 during Dvořák's time in the U.S.
