Brooklyn Rider

August 3, 2021 | 7:30 pm America/Denver
The Festival welcomes Brooklyn Rider, “four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) to the Robert Mann Chamber Music Series. In this fresh and inventive program, Brooklyn Rider contrasts Franz Schubert’s lauded “Death and the Maiden” quartet with Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Schisma, commissioned by Brooklyn Rider, and Osvaldo Golijov’s Tenebrae, which the composer describes as “an orbiting spaceship that never touches the ground.” The quartet’s passion for performing and commissioning colorful and innovative music led NPR to describe Brooklyn Rider this way: “Take two violins, a viola, a cello. Add the world.” Due to travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the previously scheduled Danish String Quartet will not be able to visit the Festival this summer. Tickets for Danish String Quartet are automatically valid for Brooklyn Rider’s concert on the same date and time.
