The Alexander String Quartet, Baruch’s ensemble-in-residence since 1986, is an internationally renowned quartet, widely admired for its interpretations of the quartet literature. Hearing the ASQ play in Baruch’s Engelman Hall ("ideally intimate... perfect hall for chamber music” NYT, April 2006) represents an extraordinary, free opportunity to Baruch students and members of the faculty. With their concerts next week, the ASQ brings us all six of the string quartets of the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók (1881-1945).
