Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth presents Vermeer String Quartet
The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth will present the Vermeer String Quartet, who will perform Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ. This special pre-Easter concert will be held in the auditorium of the new Renzo Piano Pavilion of the Kimbell Art Museum.
The Vermeer String Quartet, which was founded in 1969, discontinued performing in 2007 after decades of celebrated concerts. However, when Gary Levinson, Artistic Director for the Chamber Music Society, asked the musicians if they would consider reuniting in a performance of Haydn’s masterpiece for the CMSFW concert season, they graciously accepted. A recording of this work by the Vermeer received a Grammy Award in 1988.
