AZMEH, JACOBSEN, ZHURBIN

With their eclectic programs, combining the classical canon with contemporary music in all its forms, genres, and traditions, the four musicians of Brooklyn Rider have truly transformed the string quartet into a genre of the 21st century. For their Pierre Boulez Saal debut, they are joined by Kinan Azmeh, who will not only perform as clarinetist but also be in the spotlight as the composer of three pieces. Recent works by the quartet’s violinist Colin Jacobsen as well as Lev Zhurbin’s Everywhere Is Falling Everywhere, which was inspired by poetry of the Persian mystic Rūmi, complete the program.
