If you’re away from home, how good it is to find a musical sanctuary, as I have the last two Fridays at Harvard’s Paine Concert Hall; last night I heard this string quartet play, wonderfully, music by Brahms and two contemporary composers (Adam Roberts, James Yannatos).

Chiara Quartet, Jefferson Friedman: String Quartet No. 2 (excerpt)

Are we ever better—more focused, more receptive, more supple—than when we’re listening to live music?
