Running Start-Conversations with Brooklyn Rider

Venue: Hart Recital Hall, Music Building


“They are four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that continue to attract legions of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike. Join us for an open conversation with Brooklyn Rider about their journey from DIY quartet to one of the foremost quartets in the world, commissioning, working with non-Western music styles and artists, and the future of chamber music.
