About the Brentano Quartet
Mark Steinberg, violin Serena Canin, violin Misha Amory, viola Nina Lee, cello
Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim. "Passionate, uninhibited and spellbinding," raves the London Independent; the New York Times extols its "luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism"; the Philadelphia Inquirer praises its “seemingly infallible instincts for finding the center of gravity in every phrase and musical gesture”; and the Times (London) opines, "the Brentanos are a magnificent string quartet...This was wonderful, selfless music-making."
