In Michael Hollinger’s look at the discordant backstage world of classical music, The Lazara Quartet has just fired one of its members, and his replacement is wary of the group’s reputation for personal, violent quarrels. And as they prepare for a command performance at the White House, they’re haunted by their former colleague’s sudden disappearance.
This recording also includes an interview with playwright Michael Hollinger as well as an interview with arts consultant Drew McManus.
