Brooklyn Rider on Polyphonic Perversity 4/6/14

Brooklyn RiderTune in to Polyphonic Perversity on Sunday, April 6, 12-2pm to hear an interview with Brooklyn Rider. The group (Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violins; Nicholas Cords, viola; Eric Jacobsen, cello) is one of the most exciting string quartets currently out there, creating a veritable jukebox of musics from around the world and across history. They have been in residency at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill for the past few years, and they are playing a Carolina Performing Arts concert on April 6 at 7:30 pm in Memorial Hall, Chapel Hill, featuring soprano Dawn Upshaw. In this exclusive interview, they talk about their approach to concert programming, the intersection of the Western canon with musics from around the world, the act of collaboration, the ins and outs of Schoenberg's second string quartet (which will be the centerpiece of their concert) and so much more. I hope you can tune in.
