Caramoor: Brentano Quartet with Todd Palmer, clarinet, in the Spanish Courtyard – NYC Events

Enjoying over 20 years of acclaim and a place as one of the world’s top string quartets, the Brentano Quartet returns to Caramoor with three-time Grammy-nominated clarinettist Todd Palmer. Their program includes transcriptions of madrigals by Gesualdo, whose works pre-date the string quartet as a medium, Beethoven’s magnificent Quartet Opus 18, No 4 and the Brahms Clarinet Quintet, certainly, one of the greatest chamber music masterpieces ever composed. “The Brentanos are a magnificent string quartet … This was wonderful, selfless music-making” (The Times, London).   —Caramoor

“The American ensemble, by now well established in the international pantheon, offers performances both fiercely intelligent and expressively pristine.” — New Yorker
