Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the distinguished Brentano String Quartet is acclaimed for its interpretive power and seemingly limitless musical insight. Mark Steinberg, Serena Canin, Misha Amory, and Nina Lee return to the Williams Center with Haydn’s Quartet Opus 64, No. 2, a pivotal and expansive moment in the composer’s career, and Brahms’ penetrating Quartet in C minor. In between, representative of the Brentano’s typically brainy approach to program-making, is the idea to alternate movements of Schubert’s Minuets among Webern’s Bagatellen, thereby illuminating the younger composer’s reverence for the spirit of Vienna.

Program: Haydn / Quartet in B-minor, Op. 64, No. 2 // Webern / Bagatellen, Op. 9 and Schubert / Minuets, D. 89 // Brahms / Quartet in C minor, Op. 51, No. 1
