The inventive and ever-evolving string quartet Brooklyn Rider proffers an omnivorous steady diet of new works, global collaborations, and interpretations of the standard quartet repertoire. On its latest, Spontaneous Symbols, the quartet presents recent works from a closely knit family of composers, including their own violinist Colin Jacobsen. Hear a portion of Jacobsen’s “BTT,” in which there is wrestling with chaos and cosmic order (via the framework of John Cage & J.S. Bach.) Also, listen to the work by Brooklyn guitarist/composer Kyle Sanna - his episodic musical essay “Sequence for Minor White” - which looks to the mid-century American photographer and founder of Aperture Magazine.
The new music champions of the string quartet Brooklyn Rider join us in-studio.
