Brooklyn Rider and 2 Foot Yard
Famous for his phenomenal technique, deep understanding of the instrument, and a huge repertoire spanning five centuries, Paul Jacobs brings his charismatic stage presence and unique sense of showmanship to every performance. Program will include the rarely heard Sonata in D Minor, Op. 60 by Max Reger.
Vital and creative ensemble Brooklyn Rider along with trio 2 Foot Yard featuring violinist and vocalist Carla Kihlstedt are featured in this broadcast. Members of Brooklyn Rider have traversed far beyond the boundaries of New York to explore various cultures and develop their own unique artistic talent. Genre-defying 2 Foot Yard's soundscape is full of melodic improvisation, merging rock with contemporary chamber music. These two groups will perform separately and then together for a new jointly written composition.
