Lamentations, a centuries-spanning compendium of songs and compositions, fulfills an ancient tradition, says Brentano violinist Mark Steinberg, of hiring professional mourners to help create catharsis. Stories within the works can help give form to grief, so that it becomes a distinct entity instead of occupying the bereaved’s whole being. At the Bing, Brentano performs Purcell’s “Dido’s Lament,” Bartók’s Second Quartet, Shostakovich (from his Lady Macbeth of Mtensk), and Haydn’s Seven Last Words.
