Strings Attached

Masters of bowing and plucking take center stage this week.

  1. 1. Itzhak Perlman

    October 27 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

    Though he’s inextricably tied to the city, Perlman doesn’t play here often; catch the charming violinist alongside his students in this chamber performance.

  2. 2. Jordi Savall

    October 29 and 31at Carnegie Hall

    Whether leading fellow baroque musicians or playing solo, Catalan viola da gamba player Savall brings a fresh, elegant approach to this ancient instrument.

  3. 3. Edgar Meyer

    October 31 at Zankel Hall

    You’ll look at the bass a whole new way after watching Meyer work its neck; he’s a true virtuoso who manages to gracefully navigate—and blur—all boundaries of style.
