Founded at the Juilliard School in 1992, the ensemble takes its name from Antonie Brentano – one of the candidates for Beethoven’s still unidentified ‘immortal beloved’. The New York Times has described the Brentano as ‘something special. Their music-making is private, delicate and fresh, but by its very intimacy and importance it seizes attention.’
