David Soyer, founding cellist of the Guarneri Quartet, died last Thursday, a day after his 87th birthday.  We'll remember him with a late quartet by Beethoven.  We'll also anticipate the Ying Quartet's performance at Keene State College Wednesday with a quartet by Tchaikovsky.  Plus, a recent recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 4.
