Brooklyn Rider Does Debussy

This video clip was broadcast yesterday on NPR affiliate WNYC in New York City (just the audio, obviously).

The young string quartet Brooklyn Rider takes on everything from Debussy and John Cage to works featuring the Japanese shakuhachi and electronics. With their high-energy performing style and occasional gigs in rock clubs, the group is helping to shake up the once staid image of the string quartet. For more music and an interview, click here.
