New Esterházy String QuartetClassical at the Freight brings in the Bay Area’s best classical musicians for an hour of outstanding chamber music in an informal, friendly atmosphere. Ben Simon, the music director of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, hosts. There’s no stuffiness, no mystification, just an invigorating evening with gifted musicians sharing the beauty and joy of this timeless art with new audiences of all ages.

Tonight marks the return of a Freight favorite, the New Esterházy String Quartet, in an exciting program we’re calling “Dancing with the Stars,” featuring famous and infamous minuets and assorted dance movements by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and others, performed by these four fabulous musicians – Lisa Weiss and Kati Kyme on violin, Anthony Martin on viola, and William Skeen on violoncello – joined by guest violist Ben Simon.

What’s an infamous minuet? Find out when you join us for Classical at the Freight – and enjoy stimulating music, beautifully and expressively played.
