“Vitality, clarity of line, depth of sound and an impeccable sense of direction” – The Strad

92Y’s Soundspace series in Buttenwieser Hall continues in its second season of exciting artists offering their particular points of view. The Ariel Quartet returns to present a fascinating program that explores the ties between the three major monotheistic religions. They combine works by contemporary Jewish and Muslim composers with Beethoven’s great "Heiliger Dankgesang” Quartet, Op. 132, with a holy song of thanks to his Christian God.
