The London Independent has raved about the Brentano String Quartet, calling it, “Passionate, uninhibited, and spellbinding.”

Since its inception in 1992, this ensemble has appeared at the world’s most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York; the Library of Congress in Washington; the Cocertgebouw in Amsterdam; the Konzerthaus in Vienna; Suntory Hall in Tokyo; and the Sydney Opera House. The Brentano Quartet is currently in residence at the Yale School of Music.
