The stars aligned in 1987 and now Da Camera, The Menil Collection and the world-renowned Austrian string quartet Quatuor Mosaïques — known for playing on period-specific instruments — are all celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. “Thirty years ago it seems like there was a certain amount of creative energy,” observes Sarah Rothenberg, Da Camera’s artistic and general director. For the Mosaïques’ return to Houston, they will play three masterworks in the Menil, a setting Rothenberg says is as close as you can get to an 18th- or 19th-century salon, including pieces from Mendelssohn and Beethoven that Rothenberg says are linked, “one written by a very young composer who became a great Romantic composer, and the other written by one of the greatest composers who ever lived as one of his very last musical statements.”

7:30 p.m. Tuesday. 1533 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit dacamera.com. $60.
