Brentano String Quartet


oneppo chamber music series

The Brentano String Quartet, YSM's outstanding ensemble-in-residence, presents "Lamentations."

"There exists an old tradition of professional lamenters, who, as a service to those who grieve, digest and transfigure that grief in giving it voice," Brentano violinist Mark Steinberg explains. "What greater faith in art can be imagined? This program of lamentations celebrates that art of cathartic expression in songs of lamentation from Purcell through Bartok and Carter, evincing strength and vulnerability in equal measure, through the intimacy and immediacy of the string quartet."
