The annually anticipated Fabian Concert Series at Mercer Universitys McDuffie Center for Strings begins Tuesday evening with a performance by the Brentano Quartet.
The Brentano Quartet includes Mark Steinberg, violin; Serena Canin, violin; Misha Amory, viola; and Nina Lee, cello. It is named for Antonie Brentano, whom many scholars consider to be Beethovens Immortal Beloved, the intended recipient of his famous love confession.
Having a quartet like the Brentanos here at Mercer will continue our tradition of great music, said Amy Schwartz Moretti, director of Mercers Robert McDuffie Center for Strings. Most people have probably heard them play before if they saw the movie, A Late Quartet, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Christopher Walken. They were the featured group throughout the movie. Their musicianship and group chemistry is wonderful.
Since its inception in 1992, the quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim, according to a news release. The quartet had its first European tour in 1997, and was honored in the U.K. with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding Debut. In recent seasons, the quartet has traveled widely, appearing all over the United States and Canada, in Europe, Japan and Australia.
