Seacoast audiences will have another special treat in August when The Portsmouth Athenaeum presents six musicians from Boston's acclaimed strings ensemble, A Far Cry.

Violinists Jae Cosmos Lee and Jesse Irons, violists Jason Fisher and Sarah Darling, and cellists Jonathan Butler and Rafael Popper-Keizer will perform Arnold Schoenberg's masterpiece sextet Verklärte Nacht or Transfigured Night. Also on their program will be spirited works from two Viennese generations earlier - Mozart's sublime String Quintet in C Major and the Eyeglass Duo for Viola & Cello by Beethoven.
