Forgive the hyperbole, but I‘ve seen the future of chamber music and it is Brooklyn Rider.
Praised for their “stunningly imaginative” performances (Lucid Culture), the adventurous, intrepid string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that continues to attract legions of fans and draw critical acclaim from classical, world, and rock critics. Born out of a desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large cross section of history and geography, Brooklyn Rider is equally devoted to the interpretation of existing quartet literature and to the creation of new works.
