One of the country’s most accomplished and sought-after string quartets, the Brentano Quartet has been touring the world’s most prestigious concert halls for nearly thirty years. Currently in residence at the Yale School of Music, the quartet was summed up perfectly by the Philadelphia Inquirer, who praised its “seemingly infallible instincts for finding the center of gravity in every phrase and musical gesture.”

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.”
ABOUT GATHERNYC GatherNYC is a revolutionary weekly concert experience. Held every Sunday morning in downtown Manhattan, GatherNYC evokes the community and spiritual nourishment of a religious service, but the religion here is music, and all are welcome. Guests are served exquisite live classical music by New York’s most celebrated artists, artisanal coffee and pastries, a taste of the spoken word, and a brief celebration of silence. The entire experience lasts one hour. In these unsettling times, GatherNYC provides a place to fortify beauty and peace. Cellist Laura Metcalf and classical guitarist Rupert Boyd are the founders and co-artistic directors of GatherNYC.
