Listen to the classical sounds of the Brentano Quartet in the museum foyer of The Menil Collection on Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

Attendees will hear pieces like Mozart’s “Quintet in G Minor” and “K.516”, Britten’s “String Quartet No. 3” and a commissioned piece from Danish composer Poul Ruders – all performed by the Brentano Quartet with the beautiful museum set as a backdrop.

Founded in 1992, the Brentano Quartet were the first quartet-in-residence at Princeton University, where the members regularly taught chamber music. Most recently the group became the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Yale School of Music.

For the occasion the quartet will be joined by Hsin-Yun Huang on viola and Sarah Rothenberg on piano.
