Brooklyn Rider - Dominant Curve (CD)
Release Date: 04/06/10
NYC string quartet celebrates Claude Debussy with a fresh and vivid interpretation of his String Quartet in G Minor
Born out of a desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large cross section of history and geography, Brooklyn Rider is equally devoted to the interpretation of existing quartet literature and to the creation of new works. Following their critically acclaimed debut album, Passport (2008), Dominant Curve, a new self-produced recording from the group, marks their second release on In a Circle Records. Dominant Curve's eclectic sound world is deeply reflective of the signature approach of Brooklyn Rider. Like much of the quartet's output, the album is global in its scale - representing traditions from France, United States, Uzbekistan, Japan, and beyond. It also represents Brooklyn Rider's newest iteration of their porous approach to the string quartet tradition, creating a transformational journey between familiar and unfamiliar, acoustic and electro-acoustic, past and present.For fans of Kronos Quartet & Turtle Island String Quartet.
