Event description

Description

Stradivari Anniversary Concert
Brentano Quartet

With Hsin-Yun Huang, viola


ABOUT THE CONCERT
What’s better than hearing one string quintet played on five Stradivari instruments? Hearing three quintets! Using five of the Library’s legendary instruments, the Brentano Quartet is joined by violist Hsin-Yun Huang in performances of three major works from the repertory. Don’t miss your chance to hear two of only a dozen or so Stradivari violas in existence, expertly handled in performances of this rich repertoire.
