Brooklyn Rider has reinvigorated the venerable string quartet ensemble through its vibrant approach to both traditional and new repertoire presented with joy, energy, and the precision of virtuosos.
Three of the works on this program were included on Brooklyn Rider’s March 2020 recording “Healing Modes.” The third movement, “Holy Song of Thanksgiving for a Convalescent,” from Beethoven’s Quartet in A minor, Op. 132, alternates hymnlike sections with passages marked “feeling new strength.” Both Matana Roberts’s borderlands and Caroline Shaw’s Schisma were commissioned by Brooklyn Rider for the quartet’s project on healing. Closing the concert is the Philip Glass’s Third Quartet, based on music he wrote for the biopic of the writer Yukio Mishima.
