Since forming in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has specialized in “exemplary performances [and] startling musical revelations” (The Guardian, London), regularly touring around the world to popular and critical acclaim. The gold medalist of the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Haochen Zhang has captivated audiences with a “combination of enchanting, senstive lyricism and hypnotizing forcefulness…a phenomenon encountered very rarely” (The Jerusalem Post).

“The Cliburn’s mission is to share classical music with the widest audience possible. The viewership of the competition webcasts has grown exponentially every four years and is an extremely valuable tool to fulfilling that mandate. We have an expertise in broadcasting live concerts online and are presenting the finest artists annually in Fort Worth. It’s a natural extension to showcase these concerts internationally as well—and a way to bring people from across the world to the Cliburn much more often.”

–Jacques Marquis, Cliburn president and CEO
