Summary

Summary

The Brooklyn Rider Almanac asks a diverse group of musicians to apply their creative powers to the world of the string quartet. In the multi-disciplinary spirit of the quartet⿿s namesake, Der Blaue Reiter, these new works are each inspired by a creative muse of the composer⿿s choice: from James Brown, the king of funk, to the iconic choreographer Mark Morris. Each work is presented in its world-premiere recording.
