GREAT BARRINGTON — Acclaimed for musical insights and rare tonal beauty, the Escher String Quartet has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and Asia and will be stopping at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center on May 18 at 6 p.m.

For this program, they bring a special sheen to Mozart’s powerfully compelling String Quartet No. 23 in F major (third of the “Prussian Quartets”) and to Samuel Barber’s spellbinding Adagio for Strings. They are joined by Yehuda Hanani for the incomparable Schubert Quintet, regarded as one of the greatest compositions in all of chamber music, other-worldly in its beauty and miraculous melodies.
