Brentano Quartet
(Please note - in the brochure mailed to residents, the date of this concert was listed incorrectly.  May 4, 2019 is the correct date.)  

Since  its  inception  in  1992,  the  Brentano  String  Quartet  has  appeared  throughout  the  world  to  popular  and  critical  acclaim.  Passionate,  uninhibited  and  spellbinding,  raves  the  London  Independent;  the  New  York  Times  extols  its  luxuriously  warm  sound  [and]  yearning  lyricism.

Within  a  few  years  of  its  formation,  the  Quartet  garnered  the  first  Cleveland  Quartet  Award  and  the  Naumburg  Chamber  Music  Award;  and  in  1996  the  Chamber  Music  Society  of  Lincoln  Center  invited  them  to  be  the  inaugural  members  of  Chamber  Music  Society  Two,  a  program  which  was  to  become  a  coveted  distinction  for  chamber  groups  and  individuals.    The  Quartet  had  its  first  European  tour  in  1997,  and  was  honored  in  the  U.K.  with  the  Royal  Philharmonic  Award  for  Most  Outstanding  Debut.  That  debut  recital  was  at  Londons  Wigmore  Hall,  and  the  Quartet  has  continued  its  warm  relationship  with  Wigmore,  appearing  there  regularly  and  serving  as  the  halls  Quartet-in-residence  in  the  2000-01  season.  

In  1999,  the Quartet  became  the  first  Ensemble-In-Residence  at  Princeton  University,  where  they  taught  and  performed  for  fifteen  years;  and  in  2014,  the  Quartet  became  the  Resident  String  Quartet  at  the  Yale  School  of  Music,  succeeding  the  Tokyo  Quartet  in  that  position.  At  Yale,  they  perform  in  concert  each  semester,  and  work  closely  with  the  students  in  chamber  music  contexts.  

In  recent  seasons  the  Quartet  has  traveled  widely,  appearing  all  over  the  United  States  and  Canada,  in  Europe,  Japan  and  Australia.  It  has  performed  in  the  worlds  most  prestigious  venues,  including  Carnegie  Hall  and  Alice  Tully  Hall  in  New  York;  the  Library  of  Congress  in  Washington;  the  Concertgebouw  in  Amsterdam;  the  Konzerthaus  in  Vienna;  Suntory  Hall  in  Tokyo;  and  the  Sydney  Opera  House.  The  Quartet  has  participated  in  summer  festivals  such  as  Aspen,  the  Music  Academy  of  the  West  in  Santa  Barbara,  the  Edinburgh  Festival,  the  Kuhmo  Festival  in  Finland,  the  Taos  School  of  Music  and  the  Caramoor  Festival.  

In  addition  to  performing  the  entire  two-century  range  of  the  standard  quartet  repertoire,  the  Brentano  Quartet  has  a  strong  interest  in  both  very  old  and  very  new  music,  performing  many  musical  works  pre-dating  the  string  quartet  as  a  medium,  as  well  as  works  by  some  of  the  most  important  composers  of  our  time.    The  Quartet  celebrated  its  tenth  anniversary  in  2002  by  commissioning  ten  composers  to  write  companion  pieces  for  selections  from  Bachs  Art  of  Fugue,  the  result  of  which  was  an  electrifying  and  wide-ranging  single  concert  program.  The  Quartet  has  also  worked  with  the  celebrated  poet  Mark  Strand,  commissioning  poetry  from  him  to  accompany  works  of  Haydn  and  Webern.  The  Quartet  has  also  been  privileged  to  collaborate  with  such  artists  as  soprano  Jessye  Norman,  mezzo-soprano  Joyce  DiDonato,  pianist  Richard  Goode,  pianist  Jonathan  Biss,  and  pianist  Mitsuko  Uchida.    The  Quartet  is  named  for  Antonie  Brentano,  whom  many  scholars  consider  to  be  Beethovens  Immortal  Beloved,  the  intended  recipient  of  his  famous  love  confession.
