2014-2015 Season

Piotr Anderszewski
Wednesday, March 18, 7:30 p.m.

Seton Hall's Classical Series presents acclaimed pianist Piotr Anderszewski, in a solo recital two days before his recital at Carnegie Hall. According to The Guardian,"The tone and touch of Anderszewski's playing are so seductive that it is easy to forget how classically correct a musician he is." And the New York Times says "It can be hard not to wax hyperbolic when confronted with pianist Piotr Anderszewski's sensitive touch and potent imagination."

Miami String Quartet
Tuesday, April 28, 7:30 p.m.

The fabulous Miami String Quartet returns to our Series for a performance of the beloved string quartet repertoire featuring works of Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Schulhoff. According to the New York Times, this ensemble has "Everything one wants in a quartet: a rich, precisely balanced sound, a broad coloristic palette, real unity of interpretive purpose and seemingly unflagging energy."

Atlantic Brass Quintet
December 10, 7:30 p.m.

Winners of multiple awards, this internationally acclaimed ensemble is the resident brass quintet of Boston University, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, and the Boston Conservatory. In this delightful evening they present a colorful and festive program of early music gems and seasonal selections.

The Seton Hall Classical Concert Series presents I Pagliacci.
