92Y’s second co-presentation with the New York Philharmonic this season features the New York Philharmonic String Quartet joined by Beatrice Rana. Their program spans nearly 250 years and focuses on music written in response to dark times and ideas. The concert opens with award-winning contemporary composer Joel Thompson’s In response to the madness, his quartet capturing the angst of our early 21st century universe. Mozart’s “Dissonance” Quartet follows. The program’s final work features Rana in her first appearance on the 92Y stage, following her pre-pandemic Carnegie Hall debut.
