A one-night-only livestream of this event will be available.

The young Verona Quartet is experiencing a meteoric rise to the upper echelon of international chamber music, boosted by the Cleveland Quartet Award they scored last year from Chamber Music America, and a new position as the quartet-in-residence at Oberlin Conservatory. The quartet members and Joshua Roman share a passion for advancing the work of living composers; they join forces for Teen Murti by the Indian-American composer Reena Esmail in a version commissioned by Roman. Using the same distinctive configuration with two cellos, they’ll also perform a String Quintet that Schubert wrote in his final months, which seems to make time stand still and hurt melt away with its glorious affirmations of life and music.
