Brentano String Quartet

Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 4pm


“Passionate, uninhibited and spellbinding,” raves the London Independent; the New York Times extols its “luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism”; the Philadelphia Inquirer praises its “seemingly infallible instincts for finding the center of gravity in every phrase and musical gesture”.

“The celebrated Brentano returns to our series with a program of Mozart and Beethoven quartets.”
