With lush swells and bittersweet silence, a string quartet can bring listeners to quiet contemplation. Having won the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance, the Pacifica Quartet obviously knows how to play. The group also knows how to teach. Composed of faculty members at the University of Illinois, the quartet offers a short course on Romanticism with its performance at Duke tonight. They'll start with an early-period Beethoven piece before jumping over 150 years and out of the Romantic Period to play a Shostakovich composition influenced by Beethoven. Principal clarinet for the Metropolitan Opera Anthony McGill helps the ensemble find the Romantic middle ground as he joins the group for a late-period Brahms quintet. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $30, or $5 if you're a Duke student. —Andrew Ritchey
