Members of the Lyris Quartet perform Silvestre Revueltas's Musica de Feria and Brahms's String Quartet in A Minor, op. 51, no. 2.

Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, the musicians chose to create a string quartet that could encompass their love for both standard and modern repertoire and to commission works from living composers. The Lyris Quartet have performed at many chamber-music venues in Los Angeles, including LACMA’s Bing Theater, the Broad Stage, Zipper Hall at the Colburn School, Royce Hall at UCLA, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Presented as part of LACMA's Sundays Live, a weekly chamber music series. Check out the full schedule of upcoming concerts.
