“It’s a joy to be in such authoritative hands – an audience member can simply sit back, relax, and let the music fill him.” The New York Sun

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is committed to bringing audiences the finest performances of an extraordinary body of repertoire, dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to the greatest works of our time.
