Classical Music in NYC This Week

ARGUS QUARTET at Miller Theater (Sept. 12, 6 p.m.). Miller Theater’s enjoyable pop-up concerts — free entry, drinks on tap — get underway for the year with an interesting program from a quartet that is about to enter a graduate residency at the Juilliard School. On the bill are Ted Hearne’s “For David Lang,” Kerrith Livengood’s “This Is My Scary Robot Voice,” Garth Knox’s “Satellites” and Andrew Norman’s “Peculiar Strokes.”

INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE at Abrons Arts Center (Sept. 8-9, 8 p.m.). It’s hard to think of contemporary music in New York without thinking of ICE, the collective that does so much for composers already recognized and those who will be shortly. This year’s OpenICE season begins with a weekend of festivities, including workshops for families and two concerts. On Friday, hear music by Suzanne Farrin, Matthias Pintscher and Misato Mochizuki, among others; on Saturday, there are pieces by Dai Fujikura, Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Mario Diaz de Leon.
