American String Quartet to Perform in Cooperstown October 2

Written By Editor on 9/21/22 | 9/21/22

The American String Quartet, joined by cellist Philippe Muller and flutist Linda Chesis, will perform at the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival’s fall concert on Sunday, October 2 at 4pm at Christ Episcopal Church.


The highly acclaimed quartet will perform works by Haydn and Aaron Jay Kernis and conclude the afternoon joined by Mr. Muller for Schubert’s breathtaking cello quintet. 


The American String Quartet has performed the cello quintet regularly since the beginning of their career, says violist Daniel Avshalomov, and yet the piece continues to reveal new layers of meaning with each performance. Likewise, the audience should prepare for an encounter with the sublime, whether hearing it for the first or fiftieth time.


“Those who have heard this piece need no introduction,” says Avshalomov. “But those who hear it for the first time will look back on the absolute inability of language to express even a shadow of this majestic work.”
