Mozart and Aucoin
About Mozart and Aucoin
Internationally recognized as one of the outstanding string quartets of their generation, the Brentano Quartet premieres 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 Mozart’s powerful masterpiece.
