Johnny Gandelsman, violin – Colin Jacobsen, violin – Nicholas Cords, viola – Eric Jacobsen, cello The New York based ensemble has been praised as the future of chamber music, no less. One paper wrote that they have the energy of young rock stars in their re-launching of classical music, while simultaneously celebrating the music as is.Hear the young star ensemble play Schubert’s Piano Movement with its sweet and singable passages, followed by Glass’ 2nd String Quartet with the well-known Glassian simplicity in addition to great beauty.Several of the most exiting contemporary composers have composed for Brooklyn Rider. Among them Russian-American Lev Zhurbin, also known by his artist’s name of Ljova. Hear his tribute to Roma musician Nicola Neacşu. Languishing gipsy inspiration flourishing everywhere.Bartok’s quartet is tough and harsh. In glimpses, like for instance four minutes into the first movement, the music changes to soft and peaceful harmony. Three miniatures by Colin Jacobsen go far afield. There is an Arabian moonshine in addition to rhythmic ingredients from pop and rock music, soft as well as spicy scents of flower, and fiery cascades in a fabulous play with the string quartet’s range of sound possibilities.“Brooklyn Rider is re-creating the 300-year-old form of the string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble.” – National Public Radio
