In an embarrassment of riches with string quartets, this season we welcome the return of the Brentano String Quartet. The faculty quartet-in-residence at Yale University, the Brentano bring a freshness of insight and deeply moving imagination to all their performances. The New York Times says, “The Brentano String Quartet is something special…Their music-making is private, delicate and fresh, but by its very intimacy and importance it seizes attention. The performances were full of life. They seem to be listening to the same heartbeat.” London Times raves about their “passionate, uninhibited, and spellbinding” playing.
Our audiences will be especially delighted to hear a rarely heard quartet from Fanny Mendelssohn, whose younger brother Felix relied upon for inspiration and mentorship. In an innovative program of several works traversing African-American spirituals to Charles Ives, William Grant Still to Antonin Dvorak, this is a concert you will not want to miss.
