Norfolk Chamber Music Festival Hosts The Brentano Quartet--Yale Summer School of Music--Norfolk

07/18/2014 to 07/19/2014

Route 44/272, Norfolk, CT 06058. Phone: 860-542-3000.

The Brentano Quartet will be in residence in Norfolk for one week and will perform Friday, July 18 (Shostakovich Piano Quintet with pianist Boris Berman) and Saturday, July 19 (quartets by Mozart, Bartók and Beethoven's Op 131 quartet as featured in the movie "A Late Quartet"). The Brentano Quartet (Mark Steinberg, violin; Serena Canin, violin; Misha Amory, viola; and Nina Lee, cello) is the new quartet-in-residence at the Yale School of Music. The quartet was the first ever to receive both the 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. The quartet had its first European tour in 1997 during which the group was honored in the U.K. with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding Debut. 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. It has performed many musical works pre-dating the string quartet as a medium, among them madrigals of Gesualdo, fantasias of Purcell, and secular vocal works of Josquin. Also, the quartet has worked closely with some of the most important composers of our time, among them Elliott Carter, Charles Wuorinen, Chou Wen-chung, Steven Mackey, Bruce Adolphe, and György Kurtág. The Quartet has commissioned works from Wuorinen, Adolphe, Mackey, David Horne and Gabriela Frank.  Most recently, music played by the Brentano Quartet was featured in the film score of A Late Quartet.  Check the wesbite for additional events and tickets.
