The adventurous, genre-defying string quartet 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 critics.
NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with "recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble." The musicians play in concert halls and clubs, in venues as varied as Joe's Pub in New York City, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Todai-ji Temple in Japan, the Library of Congress and the South By Southwest Festival.
Through creative programming and global collaborations, Brooklyn Rider illuminates music for its audiences in ways that are "stunningly imaginative."
The concert will be held at The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library on January 25, 2012. Google Map.
