Brooklyn Rider: A Walking Fire - Musical Excursions to Clejani, Budapest, and Esfahan
Experience the excitement of Brooklyn Rider's musical excursion through Romania, Hungary, and Persia while enjoying complimentary food and drink! Praised for its “stunningly imaginative” performances (Lucid Culture), the adventurous, intrepid string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that continues to attract legions of fans and draw critical acclaim from classical, world, and rock critics. NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble,” and Vice likens Brooklyn Rider to “motocross daredevils who never screw up a stunt.” For tickets and information, visit http://pittsburghchambermusic.org/BrooklynRider.php
