DISTANT STRINGS

The Tokyo String Quartet is one of the most prestigious chamber groups worldwide -- and at 8 p.m. Tuesday, the musicians will be coming to Kleinhans Music Hall's Mary Seaton Room, courtesy of the Buffalo Chamber Music Society. A "Chat with the Artists" with WNED-FM's Peter Hall precedes the concert, at 7:15 p.m.

Founded more than 30 years ago, the Tokyo String Quartet is known for its dedication and clarity of sound, not to mention spirit of adventure. Tuesday, the group will begin with Mozart's Quartet in F, K. 590, one of the "Prussian" quartets written near the end of the composer's short life. Anton Webern's 1905 Quartet follows, and the concert concludes with the Quartet in E Minor by Guiseppe Verdi.

Admission is $20; $10 for students. For more information, call 838-2383.
