Brentano hits the silver screen

The Brentano Quartet is now on (or at least behind) the silver screen! The critically acclaimed film “A Late Quartet”, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener, and directed by Yaron Zilberman, opened on November 2.

Based on Beethoven’s late quartet, opus 131, the film uses our new recording of this work as the basis of its soundtrack. Our cellist Nina, complete with glamorous hairdo, has a walk-on role (appearing as herself, a role she is perfectly suited for), and best of all gets to hear her name said, several times, by some of her favorite actors!
