Brentano String Quartet



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: Tuesday Musical
Description: Tuesday Musical’s 130th season ends with the Brentano String Quartet and flutist Marina Piccinini at EJ Thomas Hall. Concert at 7:30 p.m.; pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m.

Named for Antonie Brentano, considered by many scholars to be Beethoven’s Immortal Beloved, the quartet has performed in the world’s most prestigious venues: Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York, the Library of Congress in Washington, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and the Sydney Opera House, among others.

Hailed by Gramophone as “the Heifetz of the flute,” Piccinini is in demand as a soloist with orchestras around the world, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and Montreal Symphony. The first flutist to win the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant from Lincoln Center, Piccinini saw her career launched when she won First Prize in the CBC Young Performers Competition in Canada and, a year later, First Prize in New York’s Concert Artists Guild International Competition.

Piccinini began her flute studies in Toronto with Akron’s own Jeanne Baxtresser and received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School.

Tickets are $45, $40, $25, and free for all students. For more information and tickets: 330-761-3460 or
