Brooklyn Rider

Ariadne Greif, soprano

Mar 1, 2025 • 7:30 pm ET

Inspired by the energy of the eponymous borough, string quartet Brooklyn Rider expands the classical canon with unparalleled skill, creativity, and unexpected collaborations. With set-lists drawn of composers from Beethoven to Björk, every performance is a musically omnivorous adventure that coaxes new energy out of classical pieces and pushes the string quartet form into new territories of Americana, jazz, and global music. The foursome’s swaggering and accessible performance style are perennial favorites at NPR, which has frequently included their albums in the station’s yearly “Best Albums” lists.

Hear Giovanni Sollima’s Four Quartets, plus works by Clarice Assad, Tyshawn Sorey, and Gabriel Kahane from the Brooklyn Rider Almanac, Book II, and more. Operatic soprano Ariadne Greif adds her “luminous, expressive voice” (New York Times) to this performance.
