"It is hard to imagine a more inviting place to hear a Haydn string quartet than Philosophy Hall at Columbia University...The hall is like a comfortable reading room in an old library. With people in rows of wooden chairs or sitting atop low bookcases that line the walls, and some standees squeezed in, about 200 listeners were accommodated.
