Since its inception in 1992, The Brentano String Quartet has been singled out for technical brilliance, musical insight and stylistic elegance. Named after Antonie Brentano, whom many scholars believe to have been Beethoven’s mysterious “Immortal Beloved,” and to whom he wrote his famous love confession, the quartet maintains a strong interest in the music of our time. In addition to serving as quartet-in-residence at numerous universities, this award-winning group has performed on concert stages around the globe.
The Oct. 13 performance of the Brentano String Quartet is supported in part by the James and Vera Olson Fund for the Arts.
The third installment in the UMR Campus Performing Arts Series will be a performance by the Moscow Chamber Orchestra at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8.
