Brentano String Quartet

The Brentano String Quartet is defined by its grand American sound and an incredible delicacy in the search for the smallest musical details. The New Yorkers offer extraordinary programmes which are a unique selling point in the European chamber music scene.

The quartet, whose name refers to Beethoven’s supposed “immortal beloved,” captivates with brilliantly coordinated ensemble playing, technical perfection and outstanding vitality.

The last concerts took the ensemble to London, Dresden, Geneva, Oslo, and Madrid.

Following a live recording of the Schubert Quintet with Michael Kannen, Mozart’s string quartets K 428 and K 465 were released most recently.

Reviews

My best concert advice is never to pass up an opportunity to hear the Brentano Quartet. …The slow movement [of Beethoven’s op. 132] was breathtaking and perfectly proportioned: ‘exquisite’ fails to do justice. The quartet ended with balance, intelligence of phrasing, and a rich depth of beauty that comes from only the greatest of artists. The Strad | New York | Leah Hollingsworth | June 9, 2019
