September 20. This 22-year-old chamber series once again returns to the sonically and architecturally spectacular Howland Cultural Center to kick off its 2015-16 season in high style. Opening the run is the group that's considered by many to be the quintessential American outfit of its kind: the Julliard String Quartet, which was founded in 1946 and is presently composed of violinists Joseph Lin and Ronald Copes, cellist Joel Krosnick, and violist Roger Tapping. The quartet's program for the concert at the 1872 venue is strikingly diverse, promising Schubert's Quartettsatz alongside works by Debussy and Elliot Carter. (See website for complete series schedule.) 4pm. $80 adults, $10 students. Beacon. (845) 7625-3012;

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
