About This Performance

“The Brentano Quartet… is something special. Their music making is private, delicate, and fresh, but by its very intimacy and importance it seizes attention” (New York Times). For over 20 years, the Brentanos have been pushing boundaries with their imaginative programming and dazzling virtuosity. New York Philharmonic Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill joins this “ensemble of exceptional insight” (Daily Telegraph) for the world premiere of a new quintet by Israeli composer Shulamit Ran. “Mr. McGill played with his trademark brilliance, penetrating sound, and rich character,” said the New York Times in a recent review. “That the ovation was so enthusiastic was no surprise.”
