Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center


CLASSICAL Firmly ensconced at Alice Tully Hall, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has returned to live performanc­e with full programs that run for two hours, including intermissi­on. The Calidore String Quartet vaults through a century of four-person pieces in “Puccini to Shostakovi­ch” (Oct. 24), featuring Puccini’s “Crisantemi,” Webern’s “Langsamer Satz,” Brahms’s Quartet in A Minor, Op. 51, No. 2, and Shostakovi­ch’s searching Quartet No. 12 in D-Flat Major. In the coming weeks, the season turns atmospheri­c: there are serenades by Mozart and Dvořák (Nov. 5), an elegant evening of Chopin (Nov. 9), and, with the baritone Will Liverman, a Spanish-themed program (Nov. 14). The “New Milestones” series, dedicated to living composers, kicks off with a shorter concert, at Rose Studio (Oct. 28).—Oussama Zahr
