"The Brentano String Quartet … is something special,” wrote Paul
Griffiths in the New York Times. “Their
music making is private, delicate and fresh, but by its very intimacy and
importance it seizes attention."
High praise, and well deserved: for almost 20 years,
they’ve been pushing boundaries with such high-concept repertoire as Fragments, which pairs newly
commissioned music with unfinished works from throughout music history.
