Review: "A Cathartic Schnittke from the Brentanos and Solzhenitsyn"

A review of a recent Schnittke Quintet with the Brentano String Quartet at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

Both as pianist and as conductor, Solzhenitsyn is an established master at interpreting music of such powerful emotional content. His playing, formidably sonorous and then, as the music’s demands evolved, caressingly lyrical, conspired with the equally intense and persuasive playing of the Brentanos to create a truly cathartic musical experience.
