Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 1992, the New York-based Brentano String Quartet is particularly recognized for their interpretations combining perfect technique with peerless musicality. Their previous release - also devoted to Beethoven' s late quartets, and named Editor' s Choice by Gramophone - served as the soundtrack for Yaron Zilberman' s film A Late Quartet, which featured a galaxy of stars including Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken.

The Strad
The glittering clarity of the Brentano's sound.

Los Angeles Times
Brilliant, virtuosic, and still mellow ... one of the great musical hopes of a field overcrowded with contenders.
