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 Quartet is named for Antonie Brentano, whom many scholars consider to be Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved”, the intended recipient of his famous love confession. Beethoven copied out Mozart’s Quartet K 464, with its wide-ranging and startlingly innovative variations movement, as an inspiration and a study for his quartet in the same key. The family relationship is easily discernible, but the child would never be mistaken for the parent. Beethoven’s takes his couldn’t-be-simpler theme and revels in its colorful transformations, echoing the imaginative scope of the Mozart.
