Brooklyn Rider


Kaul Auditorium, Reed College (map) Southeast
Sat., Jan. 28, 7:30 p.m. 2012 21+

The last time I saw Brooklyn Rider, Meryl Streep and Michelle Obama were watching them with me (so what if we weren't sitting next to each other?). That was on the televised Kennedy Center Honors show for the lifetime achievement of Yo-Yo Ma, the often-smiling cellist who formed an ensemble called the Silk Road Project—which is where the members of Brooklyn Rider met. They're a young string quartet that wants to be more than just an old string quartet; "borderless communication" is their stated goal. And their 2010 concert at Town Hall was some kind of hit. This time they'll do one of Beethoven's late, intense quartets (these are killer pieces of music, and this one is his favorite: Op. 131), "Suite for String Quartet" from Bent by Philip Glass, Kol Nidre by John Zorn, and a work by member player Colin Jacobson. JEN GRAVES
