Description

Winners of the Naumburg Award for chamber music, the Lydian String Quartet has demonstrated "a precision and involvement marking them as among the world's best quartets" (Chicago Sun-Times). Residing at Brandeis University, in Waltham, Massachusetts, the Lydians have continued to offer compelling, superbly integrated, and marvelously elegant performances of the quartet literature, since their formation in 1980. The Lydian String Quartet will present Vincent Persichetti’s Piano Quintet (Op. 66, 1954) with pianist Geoffrey Burleson, director of piano studies at Hunter College, CUNY. Also on the program is Mozart's String Quartet in D Minor, K. 421. Members of the Lydian quartet are Daniel Stepner, violin; Judith Eissenberg, violin; Mary Ruth Ray, viola; and Joshua Gordon, cello.
