The Juilliard String Quartet played last night at Alice Tully Hall for the last time in its old formation.
Joel Krosnick, the cellist, bowed out after 42 years with a performance of the Schubert C-major quintet, involving the ensemble’s new cellist, Astrid Schween. The group has been quartet in residence at the Juilliard School since 1946.
They will continue to perform together until the summer, but never again at Alice Tully.
Sic transit harmonia mundi.
