Genre-bending string quartet Brooklyn Rider joins tenor Nicholas Phan (“one of the world’s most remarkable singers,” Boston Globe) for an evening of lyrical, transporting works for voice and string quartet. Works by English composers Thomas Campion and Rebecca Clarke accompany Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” Quartet and the New York Premiere of Stranger, a new song cycle by Nico Muhly that speaks to disparate challenges faced by immigrants to the United States. Hear how Brooklyn Rider is “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble.” (NPR)
