Madison Theatre at Molloy College Presents Brooklyn Rider
February 24, 2012
The adventurous, genre-defying string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that is attracting legions of fans and drawing critical acclaim from the classical, world and rock critics. NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with "recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st century ensemble."
This past season Brooklyn Rider appeared at the Cologne Philharmonie, American Academy in Rome, Malmö Festival in Sweden and SXSW Festival as the only classical group invited to play there. The quartet made its Spoleto Festival USA debut to capacity crowds in June, following an extensive cross-country tour from California to Philadelphia's Kimmel Center and New York City. "The dazzling fingers-in-every-pie versatility that Brooklyn Rider exhibits is one of the wonders of contemporary music," wrote the Los Angeles Times.
