Orion String Quartet with Peter Serkin

The Orion combine searing emotion with a “stunning” focus on detail (Washington Post).  They find a fit complement in Peter Serkin, who plays with “surgical precision and infinite subtlety” (New York Times), and distills three generations of world-class musicianship: his grandfather was violinist Adolf Busch, and his father pianist Rudolf Serkin.  In a program that balances pieces from three centuries, they feature what many consider the greatest work ever written for piano quintet, Brahms’ Op. 34.
