This fall, The Frick Collection presents its eighty-first season of classical music concerts. The 2019–20 series will showcase exceptional musical talent from around the world. Among the most anticipated programs this season are six New York debuts, including the Boston period-instrument ensemble Les Bostonades; the award-winning Vision String Quartet, from Berlin; the German trio Phaeton Piano Trio; the Spanish Impetus Madrid Baroque Ensemble; and the award-winning pianist Christian Blackshaw. Other highlights include the New York debut of violinist Hyeyoon Park, performing with pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, who appeared locally for the first time at the Frick in its 2011-2012 season. Performances by the critically acclaimed Russian pianist Arsentiy Kharitonov, and the duo of guitarist Paul Galbraith and cellist Antonio Meneses will round out this year’s impressive range of programs.

The Frick concert series has a long history of reaching audiences far beyond those present for its live performances. Since their debut, the concerts were rebroadcast on the Municipal Broadcasting System, American Public Radio, WNYC, and WQRX. Concerts from recent years are available on the WQRX website, at For complete program information and to purchase tickets, visit
