Everywhere Is Falling Everywhere for Clarinet, String Quartet and Percussion

Approximate running time: 2h with one intermission

With their eclectic programs that combine the classical canon with contemporary music in all its forms, the four musicians of Brooklyn Rider have truly transformed the string quartet into a genre of the 21st century. For their debut at the Pierre Boulez Saal they are joined by Kinan Azmeh, who will not only perform as clarinetist but also be in the spotlight as the composer of three pieces, including a new string quartet written for Brooklyn Rider.
