“Experimentalism is always more rewarding when it leads to resounding emotional depth, and this is as good an example as you’ll find of a group of musicians achieving that ideal balance.”
Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), Brooklyn Rider makes their overdue Walker debut in a special collaboration with Kayhan Kalhor, the Kurdish Iranian master of the Persian kamancheh (spike fiddle) and member of Yo-Yo Ma’s acclaimed Silk Road Ensemble. The evening also includes Swiss multi-disciplined drummer/percussionist Mathias Kunzli as special guest. This eclectic and inspired evening of contemporary-meets-classical music includes Kalhor’s Silent City, a piece commemorating the Iraqi Kurdish city of Halabja, which was destroyed in a chemical attack. Championing art’s global value in a violent world, the richly nuanced and mesmerizing concert leaves a hauntingly powerful afterglow.
Copresented with Schubert Club Mix.
