Tesla Quartet - SOLD OUT!
Winner of the Gold Medal at the 2012 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and Prizewinner in the 2012 London International String Quartet Competition and 2013 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, the Tesla Quartet was formed at The Juilliard School in 2008 and quickly established itself as one of the most promising young ensembles in New York, winning Second Prize at the J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition only a few months after its inception.
The London Evening Standard called their rendition of the Debussy Quartet “a subtly coloured performance that balanced confidently between intimacy and extraversion,” and The Strad has praised them as “technically superb.”

Trevor Stephenson and Chelsea Morris
Acclaimed duo from the Madison Bach Musicians—Chelsea Morris, soprano, and Trevor Stephenson, fortepiano,—will perform an afternoon of songs and lieder by Mozart, Haydn, and Schubert. Stephenson will perform on his 5-octave 18th-century German fortepiano to accompany Morris as well as play several solo fortepiano works by Mozart and Beethoven. He will give a brief talk about the Classical style and discuss how the fortepiano creates a thrilling sense of theatrical immediacy in the music of the 18th-century masters.
