The esteemed Juilliard Quartet is coming to town on Tuesday to bring the Buffalo Chamber Music Society’s season to what promises to be a graceful close. The musicians – violinists Joseph Lin and Ronald Copes, violist Joel Krosnick and cellist Roger Tapping – will be ending this final concert eloquently with Beethoven’s valedictory last quartet, the String Quartet in F, Op. 135. The sublime slow movement from this quartet is often played at farewell concerts, and it is a beautiful choice to wind up a season.
Opening the concert is Haydn’s lovely Quartet in G, Op. 33. And the centerpiece of the night is the Quartet No. 2, “Vistas,” by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Israeli-American composer Shulamit Ran.
The concert takes place at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Mary Seaton Room of Kleinhans Music Hall. Admission is $30. For info, call 462-4939.
