The adventurous, genre-defying string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that is attracting legions of fans and drawing critical acclaim from classical, world and rock music critics. NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble.”


The contextualizing of old and new is a hallmark of Brooklyn Rider’s work.  You’ll hear Beethoven‘s Op. 131 as a startlingly new sounding piece of music alongside an original composition by Brooklyn Rider and some of Philip Glass‘s most intimate music contained in his Quartets.
