November 10, 2012 · Print This Article
In the spirit of the Modernist motto “Make It New!”, the brilliant string quartet Brooklyn Rider returns to Chapel Hill with a carefully curated evening of music.
The program reflects on the influence of the great 20th century Modernists Igor Stravinsky and Béla Bartók, and features new works including world premieres composed by Colin Jacobsen, Shara Worden and John Zorn, and a recent new work by Gabriel Kahane.
Hailed as one of the most exciting and unconventional musical groups today, Brooklyn Rider explores the creative possibilities of the present through the lens of the historical quartet tradition and reimagines the string quartet as a vital 21st century ensemble.
