The Ariel Quartet returns to 92Y to perform for the Soundspace series, a series of concerts in the intimate Buttenweiser hall to bring the artists and audience together. This evening they present a fascinating program that explores the ties between the three major monotheistic religions. They combine Beethoven’s great Heiliger Dankgesang late quartet, Op. 132, with a holy song of thanks to his Christian God, with works by contemporary Jewish and Muslim composers. One of these works, Prophecies by Mohammed Fairouz, makes its New York premiere.
