Live at TONY: Brooklyn Rider plays Philip Glass

03.07.11
Brooklyn Rider
TimeOut New York

We've been big fans of New York string quartet Brooklyn Rider for quite some time now, both for its imaginative programming in concerts and on CD, and for a down-to-earth demeanor that demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent. Silent City, the quartet's 2008 collaboration with Persian kamancheh virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor, even grabbed a spot on our list of the year's top 10 classical CDs. The foursome's latest album, Brooklyn Rider Plays Philip Glass, comes out March 8 on Glass's Orange Mountain Music label (it's already available as a download on iTunes). And on March 9 Brooklyn Rider and Kalhor team up once again for a Tully Scope Festival event at Alice Tully Hall. The concert will include the world premiere of Glass's Suite from Bent, arranged from the composer's score for the 1997 film, along with music by Giovanni Sollima and more.

The Glass suite will be played in its entirety for the first time anywhere during Wednesday's program, but Brooklyn Rider recently stopped by the TONY offices to play the sixth movement as an exclusive taste of what's in store. In the video you're watching (from left) violinist Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords, cellist Eric Jacobsen and violinist Johnny Gandelsman.
