Brentano String Quartet: Lamentations

February 8, 2019
Bing Concert Hall

Peter Schaaf

From the acclaimed Brentano String Quartet comes Lamentations, a stunning compendium of songs and compositions that represent catharsis during times of heartbreak. Stories within the works can help give form to grief, so that it becomes a distinct entity instead of occupying the bereaved’s whole being.

At the Bing, Brentano performs Purcell’s “Dido’s Lament,” Bartók’s Second Quartet, Shostakovich (from his Lady Macbeth of Mtensk) and Haydn’s Seven Last Words.
