About the event

This program, titled after Béla Bartók’s description of the cabin in the Adirondacks where he lived and wrote music during the last summer of his life, examines each of our deep-seated need to find our voice. Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1 in A Minor appears on the program with two other string quartets: Franz Schubert‘s “Quartettsatz,” a single movement from an unfinished quartet; and a newly-commissioned work by acclaimed American composer Kenji Bunch, the much-anticipated second installment in Sheffield's 5-year commissioning project. Find out more about the program here.

Tickets are free; registgration is requested. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Waltham Cultural Council and Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Please call 617-994-5912 for more information.
