Brooklyn Rider celebrates Glass CD May 17

From 21C Media Group

For Brooklyn Rider's new album, Brooklyn Rider Plays Philip Glass, the musicians have the composer's own imprimatur. The 2-CD set will be released May 10 by Glass's Orange Mountain Music label, with the composer himself saying, "Brooklyn Rider is an exciting ensemble that brings new life and energy into the medium of the string quartet. I'm very pleased with the group's surprising and individual interpretations of my string quartets." Along with the five string quartets is the first recording of Glass's suite from his score to Bent, the late-'90s film starring Clive Owen and Mick Jagger. Brooklyn Rider played the suite's world premiere at Lincoln Center's Tully Scope Festival in March, which coincided with the recording's digital release.

Come celebrate Brooklyn Rider Plays Philip Glass on May 17 at 9 PM at Nublu, the Lower East Side club in New York City. 21C Artists To Watch newsletter recipients are invited to Brooklyn Rider's show.  Click here to RSVP and put "BROOKLYN RIDER" in the subject line.  

 

And view a video excerpt of Brooklyn Rider at the offices of Time Out New York. The magazine's Steve Smith commended the group for its "down-to-earth demeanor that demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent."

 

The Los Angeles Times has singled out the new recording's "grit," while the blog Lucid Culture marveled over the quartet's cohesiveness, pointing out how "the players - violinists Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords and cellist Eric Jacobsen - dig in with intensity and a group vision that borders on the telepathic."  Derek Beres wrote in the Huffington Post, "Once again, these four young musicians are proving themselves to be among the most fearless in the classical world today."
