As we cope with accelerating change and ever-increasing avalanche of
information, great music can help us process powerful emotions and gain much needed perspective. Summermusic 2023 will offer a kaleidoscope of musical experiences from places and eras as different as Viennese palaces and tango clubs of Buenos Aires.
Just like great novels, musical masterpieces offer a unique snapshot of human experience which powerfully resonates with contemporary life and helps us gain perspective. This is especially true when these masterpieces are brought to life
by exceptional performers.
Summermusic 2023 will feature a stellar group of musicians familiar to our audience. Grammy-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux and bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro, as well as Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society members Escher Quartet and Canellakis/Brown cello-piano duo will come together for three programs on July 7, 12 and 19.
