The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) is one of eleven constituents of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the largest performing arts complex in the world. Along with other constituents such as the New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, Lincoln Theater, and The Metropolitan Opera, the Chamber Music Society has its home at Lincoln Center, in Alice Tully Hall. Through its performances, education and recording/broadcast activities, it draws more people to chamber music than any other organization of its kind.
Among the many distinguished musicians featured in this series are pianists Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, Anne-Marie McDermott, Alessio Bax, Leon Fleisher, Gilbert Kalish, and Wu Han; violinists Erin Keefe, Arnaud Sussmann, Cho-Liang Lin, Ida Kavafian, Ani Kavafian, Yura Lee, and Daniel Hope; cellists David Finckel, Jakob Koranyi, Nicholas Canellakis, Fred Sherry, Gary Hoffman, and Andreas Brantelid; clarinetist David Shifrin; vocalists including soprano Dina Kuznetsova, soprano Erin Morley, and bass-baritone Eric Owens, and String Quartets including Orion, Escher, and Jupiter.
As the nation's premier repertory company for chamber music, CMS is committed to bringing audiences the finest performances of an extraordinary body of repertoire, dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to the finest works of our time. As a compelling and dynamic means of artistic expression, chamber music has always inspired composers to create some of their finest works. Today, CMS actively supports composers' efforts. In its 44-year history, CMS has commissioned over 135 new works from a formidable array of composers, including Bruce Adolphe, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, William Bolcom, John Corigliano, George Crumb, Lukas Foss, John Harbison, Alberto Ginastera, Morton Gould, Keith Jarrett, Oliver Knussen, Gian Carlo Menotti, Darius Milhaud, Peter Schickele, Bright Sheng, Joan Tower, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. The Chamber Music Society also supports the work of living composers by awarding the Elise L. Stoeger Prize, a cash award given every other year to an outstanding composer of chamber music. In keeping with its mandate to reach a broad audience, CMS presents national and international tours and multi-concert series outside New York.
