The Manhattan-based Cassatt String Quartet, “an extraordinary quartet” (The New York Times) and quartet-in-residence at Treetops CMS this season, returns for a Classical Grand Finale, featuring three works written within the last 15 years of the 18th century, at the peak of the Classical Era. Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, with Treetops CMS artistic director Oskar Espina Ruiz, will close our 14th season. “Mr. Espina Ruiz is a phenomenal clarinetist, a subtle and discreet virtuoso whose dynamic control matched that of the string quartet.” (CVNC).
