Last night the Juilliard Quartet headed downtown from Lincoln Center to Greenwich Village, performing Elliott Carter's String Quartet No. 1 and Schubert's "Quartettsatz"" at (le) Poisson Rouge.
Earlier in the week, the JSQ celebrated the worldwide release of their iTunes app exploring Schubert's Death and the Maidenwith a live appearance at the new Apple Store on Manhattan's fashionable Madison Avenue.
The Juilliard School has assembled a beautiful video preview of the app: explore, listen, and learn more about it all here.
