The Concert Series at The Frick Collection Celebrates its 75th Anniversary

The Frick Collection presents its seventy-fifth anniversary season of classical music concerts in the elegant setting of the museum’s Music Room. Debuting in 1938, just three years after The Frick Collection opened to the public; the concert series is one of the most celebrated in New York City and has delighted thousands of visitors over the years with world-class performances ranging from solo recitals to chamber music groups to early music ensembles. The Music Room, built in 1935 as part of the transformation of the private mansion into a museum and the setting for concerts since then, conveys the atmosphere of a private salon, offering performers and attendees a uniquely intimate environment and impressive acoustics. A New York Times critic described the spectacular setting of the Music Room as “probably the best place in New York to hear chamber music.  It is certainly the most authentic; much of the repertory was written to be played in exactly such a room.”
