NOTE: THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT. Tickets will NOT be available at the door. After 43 seasons, the Tokyo String Quartet has announced that 2012-2013 will be their last. The 2013 New Millennium Series concludes on Friday, April 19 with the Tokyo String Quartet performing Haydn's Quartet in G Major, Op. 77, Bartok's Quartet No. 5, and Ravel's Quartet in F Major.
 
Regarded as one of the supreme chamber ensembles of the world, the Tokyo Quartet—Martin Beaver and Kikuei Ikeda (violins), Kazuhide Isomura (viola) and Clive Greensmith (cello)—has collaborated with a remarkable array of artists and composers, built a comprehensive catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings and established a distinguished teaching record.

Performing over a hundred concerts worldwide each season, the quartet has a devoted international following across the globe. The members of the Tokyo String Quartet have served on the faculty of the Yale School of Music as quartet-in-residence since 1976. We feel very privileged to be part of their farewell season. It is not often that a concert series can offer its patrons the chance to witness music history, and we are delighted to be able to do so.
