    Stanford's St. Lawrence String Quartet, favored by leading composers such as John Adams and Osvaldo Golijov, forges lasting connections with audiences by virtue of its innate musicality and heartfelt presentation. St. Lawrence returns to Duke Performances with the superb pianist Stephen Prutsman, who embraces classical, pop, and jazz idioms. To commemorate the approaching anniversary of the composer's birth, the concert begins with Britten's String Quartet No. 2, a sonata-form homage to Henry Purcell. It continues with a profound new piece by the Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Taaffe Zwilich and ends with the fireworks finale of César Franck's sensuous Piano Quintet in F Minor. *** PROGRAM: BRITTEN: String Quartet No. 2 in C Major, Op. 36 ; ELLEN TAAFFE ZWILICH: New Work ; FRANCK: Piano Quintet in F Minor (w/ Stephen Prutsman, piano)
