String works from the Baroque to the present day are performed by the masterful young musicians of the Detroit-based Sphinx Organization. Vivaldi’s Concerto in B-flat Major is an energetic dialogue for the violin and cello soloists, while Beethoven’s Op. 133 masterpiece is a magnificent exploration of fugal writing. There’s also a new work by Jimmy López, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and much more.
