In a fitting conclusion to an historic season, the CMSD returns to Orchestra Hall, its home for more than 20 of its 75 years. Four of America’s most exciting young string quartets -- the Attacca, Catalyst, Dover and Harlem Quartets -- are joined by the legendary Leon Fleisher for a truly memorable season finale program.

The concert opens with a game of musical chairs in Mendelssohn’s youthful Octet, followed by Fleisher as piano soloist in Mozart’s lovely Concerto in A Major, K. 414. The concert continues with the world premiere of a new work by Catalyst Quartet member and composer Jessie Montgomery, and concludes with Fleisher as conductor in Tchaikovsky’s stirring Serenade for Strings.
