Aucoin and Mozart







Ravel: String Quartet in F Major
Matthew Aucoin: String Quartet (Houston premiere/Da Camera co-commission)
Mozart: String Quintet No. 2 in C Minor, K. 406/516

Brentano String Quartet (Mark Steinberg, violin; Serena Canin, violin; Misha Amory, viola; Nina Lee, cello); Hsin-Yun Huang, viola; Matthew Aucoin, guest composer

Internationally recognized as one of the outstanding string quartets of their generation, the Brentano Quartet returns to Da Camera for the premiere of a new work by composer Matthew Aucoin, co-commissioned by Da Camera and Carnegie Hall. Just 29 and already a MacArthur “Genius” grant winner, Aucoin is LA Opera's first ever Artist in Residence and one of the youngest composers ever commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera. Violist Hsin-Yun Huang joins the Brentano for a Mozart favorite.
