The prestigious Brentano String Quartet has dazzled the ears of audiences at Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera house with its majestic performances, which have been heralded as “luxuriously warm” by the New York Times. On April 5, the four virtuosos perform a concert that showcases the trotting regality of Bach’s final contrapunctus from Art of Fugue. Busoni’s String Quartet no. 2 begins with menacing cello before giving way to galloping violin that settles into a pristine duet between the two. Next, Beethoven’s String Quartet in B-flat Major rambles along with euphonic playfulness, and the sheet music of his ever-evolving Grosse Fugue challenges the musicians with its meticulous technicality and eighth notes penned in invisible ink.
Before entering the theater, patrons’ eyes catch the vibrant walls of the Grand Foyer that holds the Norton Center’s collection of contemporary artwork alongside a rotating lineup of secretly blinking statues and special exhibitions. Echoing with the memory of almost 40 years’ worth of show-stopping musical numbers and heart-rending violin solos, Newlin Hall’s plush red seats and cochleae-tickling acoustics contribute to the space’s renown as a setting for awe-inspiring performances.
