The Brentano Quartet
This Friday evening, the Brentano String Quartet performs a fascinating program at Darmouth College, in which contemporary composers wrote companion pieces to unfinished "fragments" of pieces by classical composers.  I spoke with violinist Mark Steinberg of the Brentano quartet about the program, and we'll hear that conversation this afternoon.

Information about the performance at Darmouth can be found here
