Fans of German chamber music will be in clover when the Hugo Wolf Quartett visits TCU this evening. (The name is not a misprint — that’s how the word “quartet” is spelled in German.) The Austrian ensemble will play music by Schubert and Schumann, but we’re keenest to hear them play the seldom-heard string quartet by Wolf himself, a 19th-century composer best known for his vocal music. The recital is at 7pm at Ed Landreth Auditorium, 2800 S University Dr, FW. Tickets are $5-10. Call 817-257-7602.

We have no shortage of celebrations of our area’s Latin community to pick from throughout the year, but this year’s Músicarte de Fort Worth offers the likes of Los Lonely Boys, A.B. Quintanilla, and Los Kumbia Kings as headliners. The outdoor festival has moved to the new outdoor venue Panther Island, which should draw some newcomers as well. The festival runs Sat-Sun at N Henderson & W Belknap sts, FW. Admission is $2-3. Call 817-625-5411.

The only surviving full set of George Washington’s wooden dentures will be on display at Discover the Real George Washington, an exhibit at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History devoted to our nation’s first president. With displays devoted to the first president’s early careers in agriculture and business, this promises to be the biggest site of Washingtoniana outside of Mount Vernon. The show runs Oct 15-Jan 22 at 1600 Gendy St, FW. Tickets are $10-14. Call 817-255-9300.

Masters of the Fiddle is the stage name of Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, the married Canadian couple who made their names separately in the fields of Celtic music and Irish dance. They’ve lately branched out into Cape Breton music as well, but the Gaelic stuff will still be the bread and butter of their show at Bass Hall this evening. The performance starts at 7:30pm at 555 Commerce St, FW. Tickets are $16.50-55. Call 817-212-4280.
