"The dazzling versatility that Brooklyn Rider exhibits is one of the wonders of contemporary music."
 --Los Angeles Times

Hailed as "the future of chamber music" (Strings), the string quartet Brooklyn Rider features Nicholas Cords on viola, violinist Johnny Gandelsman, and brothers Colin Jacobsen on violin and Eric Jacobsen on cello. At Wesleyan, the group will perform Franz Schubert's String Quartet No. 13 in a minor, the United States premiere of the work on the attraction for felicitous amplitude for string quartet and electronics by Assistant Professor of Music Paula Matthusen, and selections from their album The Brooklyn Rider Almanac, which features commissions by Bill Frisell, Vijay Iyer, Glenn Kotche, and others.

A Crowell Concert Series event presented by the Music Department and the Center for the Arts.
