Chiaroscuro-Shostakovich’s intensely personal “String Quartet No. 8,” dedicated to the victims of fascism and war, sits in high contrast with two of the most uplifting, ebullient quartets by Mozart and Mendelssohn, performed by the Brentano Quartet.
Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim. The Quartet has performed across five continents in the world’s most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York; the Library of Congress in Washington; the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam; the Konzerthaus in Vienna; Tokyo’s Suntory hall; and the Sydney Opera House.
