KATONAH, N.Y. -- Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts will host The Brentano Quartet featuring works by Charpentier, Debussy and Brahms on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m.
The evening will begin with Suite for Strings in d by Charpentier, followed by Debussy's String Quartet and will close with Brahms' Quartet in B-flat, Op. 67.
The Brentano Quartet is comprised of violinists Mark Steinberg and Serena Canin, violist Misha Amory and cellist Nina Lee.
In recent seasons, the Quartet has traveled widely, appearing throughout the United States and Canada, in Europe, Japan and Australia. They have participated in summer festivals such as Aspen, the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, the Edinburgh Festival, the Kuhmo Festival in Finland, the Taos School of Music and the Caramoor Summer Music Festival.
The group had its first European tour in 1997, and was honored in the U.K. with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding Debut.
"The Brentano's performance is recommended for all listeners," says Paul Rosenblum, Caramoor's managing director. "Somehow, and this is what sets them apart, they make every note sound inevitable within the structure of the experience. They make the music speak and bring order out of chaos. I don't know how they do it. It's about inspiration and, ultimately, genius."
The Brentano's Saturday, Nov. 22 appearance is one of a series of chamber performances featured at Caramoor this Fall. The organization will close out the year on Saturday, Dec. 13 with a family-friendly holiday performance by Windsync, a spirited five-piece wind ensemble.
Tickets for both performances start at $15. Tickets are currently on sale and may be purchased at the Caramoor Box Office, 914.232.1252 or ordered online at www.caramoor.org.
