Late Night at the Parrish with Brooklyn Rider

In a first-ever partnership, the Parrish Art Museum and the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival co-present the eclectic, rhapsodic, genre-busting Brooklyn Rider for an evening of adventure and discovery. So extraordinary is their music making that the BCMF and the Parrish wanted to provide a second opportunity for the ensemble to wow audiences on Saturday, August 9. At 9pm, Brooklyn Rider will be featured in Late Night at the Parrish–a cabaret-style concert experience in the Parrish Art Museum's fabulous Lichtenstein Theater, where guests can enjoy a glass of wine as they listen. The concert will last approximately one hour, with no intermission.

The adventurous string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines an eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that continues to attract fans from classical, world, and rock genres. This season began with a fall tour, offering works by Stravinsky, Bartók, and Gabriel Kahane, as well as world premieres by Colin Jacobsen, Shara Worden, Vijay Iyer and John Zorn— with stops at the UNC-Chapel Hill, where they continue their three-year residency and participate in UNC’s “Rite of Spring at 100” series. Brooklyn Rider also participated in the premiere of a new work by Kahane at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, and began “The Brooklyn Rider Almanac,” a commissioning project where composers from various genres write short, art-inspired works for quartet. In January, Brooklyn Rider premiered new works by Nik Bärtsch, Padma Newsome, Greg Saunier, Ethan Iverson, and Bill Frisell at Dartmouth College. The quartet participated in a recording project Béla Fleck, appeared at Chicago’s Mandel Hall and Atlanta’s Schwartz Center, and embarked on a second Asia tour. They have been very active in the recording studio, including the much-praised Brooklyn Rider Plays Philip Glass on the composer’s own label. Violinist Johnny Gandelsman launched In A Circle Records in 2008 with the release of Brooklyn Rider's debut recording, Passport, followed by Dominant Curve in 2010, and Seven Steps in 2012. A long-standing relationship between Brooklyn Rider and Kayhan Kalhor resulted in the critically acclaimed 2008 recording, Silent City.
