Brentano String Quar­tet re­turn

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Brentano String Quar­tet made a mem­o­rably strong show­ing when Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica brought the group to town most re­cently, two sea­sons back. For their re­turn recital, at 3 p.m. on Sun­day, March 8, the play­ers of­fer two clas­sics — Haydn’s Quar­tet in B-flat ma­jor (Op. 50, No. 1) and Schu­bert’s “Death and the Maiden” Quar­tet — plus a re­cent work, James MacMil­lan’s String Quar­tet No. 3 (from 2007). One of Scot­land’s lead­ing mu­si­cal lights, MacMil­lan’s scores of­ten re­flect his predilec­tions for spir­i­tual or Catholic re­li­gious sub­jects, Re­nais­sance his­tor­i­cal events, and so­cial moral­ity. The per­for­mance takes place at the St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.). Tick­ets ($10 to $65) are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Lensic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org). — J.M.K.
