The Brentano Quartet is a string quartet founded in 1992.[1] It is the first quartet-in-residence at Princeton University, where the members regularly teach chamber music.[2][3] They have embarked on several tours in the United States. The quartet takes its name from Antonie Brentano, believed by some to be Beethoven's "Immortal Beloved." The members of the quartet are Mark Steinberg (who graduated from Juilliard), Serena Canin (violins), Misha Amory (viola), and Nina Lee (cello), all of whom hold masters' degrees from Juilliard as well. They have performed all over the world.

Recently, music played by the Brentano String Quartet was featured in the score of the film A Late Quartet.[4]

The quartet appeared for the first time at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas where they were invited to play a piano quintet by either Brahms, Dvorak, Franck, or Schumann with each of the competition's 12 semifinalists.
