For nearly three decades, the Parisii Quartet has delivered lively performances in and out of its home (and namesake) in the French capital. During its last tour through the States, the string ensemble brought along an all-French program. This time, it will perform works by Austrian composers Webern and Haydn as well as Debussy.

For a preview, download the Parisii Quartet recording of Claude Debussy's “Assez vif et bien rythmé." In the video below, watch an excerpt of the Parisii Quartet at the 2004 International Quartet Festival performing composer Jean-Michel Bossini’s “Broken Times.”

The Parisii Quartet performs at Le Poisson Rouge on Monday night.
