CLASSICAL | 'A Couple of Couples' 

The Society for Chamber Music in Rochester, this Sunday, will present the agreeable company of "A Couple of Couples" — who also happen to be outstanding musicians — in various permutations. The couples are violinist Robin Scott and cellist Ahrim Kim and violist Phillip Ying and cellist Keiko Ying. The performers will play duos by Maurice Ravel and the Japanese-American cellist and composer Paul Wiancko ("American Haiku," a 2014 work for viola and cello that's become very popular; you can see Wiancko performing it on YouTube), and a string trio by Jean Francaix. All four musicians join for the Quartet No. 2 by the late-Romantic era Russian composer Anton Arensky — that's right, a string quartet with two cellos instead of two violins. This is a rather somber work, but Arensky produces a luxurious texture from his unusual ensemble. All in all, an unusual concert worth attending; you might even want to make it a double date.

Society for Chamber Music in Rochester will perform "A Couple of Couples" on Sunday, March 11, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 4 p.m. $35. chambermusicrochester.org.
