Friday, October 27, 2017: Brentano String Quartet with Violist Hsin-Yun Huang (Classical Strings)
A few short years after they formed in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet won the first Cleveland Quartet
Award and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award. They were inaugural members of Lincoln Center’s
Chamber Music Society Two, a program that has become a coveted distinction for chamber groups and
individuals. The quartet was honored in the UK with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding
Debut (1997). The group has performed at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, the Library of Congress, the
Konzerthaus in Vienna, and the Sydney Opera House. Since 2014, the quartet has been the Resident String
Quartet at the Yale School of Music. For Civic Music they have invited violist Hsin-Yun Huang to join them
for quintets from Mozart, Brahms, and Mendelssohn.
