The Calder Quartet (Autumn de Wilde)

ARTIST: Calder Quartet

DOWNLOAD: "O Albion" from Thomas Adès "Arcadiana."

SHOW: Friday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art ($40) 

The Calder Quartet is one of those groups that’s as much at home playing on stage with Andrew W.K. as they are playing at Carnegie Hall. The ensemble wraps up a Bartok-focused fall residency at the Metropolitan Museum of Art tonight, joined by vocalist and violinist Iva Bittová. Download a recording of the group playing the movement "O Albion" from the Adès string quartet piece “Arcadiana" above, and watch them performing one of Bartok's quartets below.
