Brentano String Quartet
An American string quartet founded at Juilliard in 1992, they received the Naumberg Award and the Martin Segal Prize within a year of their public concert debut. The Brenano became the first ensemble-in-residence at Princeton University, a position it held from 1999-2014. It is now the quartet-in-residence at the Yale School of Music. They performed the central music in the critically-acclaimed independent film, ‘A Late Quartet.’
