A must-see, must-hear appearance by America’s most exciting string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, with a deep dive into the four elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Colin Jacobsen’s A Short While to Be Here… finds earthiness in frontier songs, Dutilleux’s Ainsi la nuit seemingly filled by popping bubbles of air, Pinto-Correia’s Aere senza stelle moving from air to the fire that flares in Akshaya Tucker’s Hollow Flame and Shostakovich’s Eighth String Quartet. Golijov says his Tenebrae ‘sounds like an orbiting spaceship that never touches ground’.
