The Brentano String Quartet present their final concert as the Edward T. Cone performers-in-residence at Princeton University, in Princeton, New Jersey, on Friday, April 11, at 7:30 pm, at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. The program will feature two works by Mozart as well as the Princeton premiere of Filipe Lara’s “Archi Elastici” for string quintet featuring violist Hsin-Yun Huang. The concert is free, though reservations are required.

Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world. In 1999, they became the first resident string quartet at Princeton University. The quartet’s duties at the University are wide-ranging, including performances at least once a semester, as well as workshops with graduate composers, coaching undergraduates in chamber music, and assisting in other classes at the music department.

The Brentano will join the faculty of Yale School of Music as quartet-in-residence in this fall.
