BROOKLYN RIDER


May 13

BRAM GOLDSMITH THEATER

Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), the game-changing string quartet Brooklyn Rider presents eclectic repertoire and gripping performances that continue to draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike. NPR credits violinists Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords and cellist Michael Nicolas with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble,” the Los Angeles Times dubs the group “one of the wonders of contemporary music,” and Vice likens its members to “motocross daredevils who never screw up a stunt.” Equally at home in clubs and concert halls, Brooklyn Rider’s “down-to-earth demeanor … demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent.” (Time Out New York)
