Editorial Reviews

The New York based string quartet Brooklyn Rider performs the complete Philip Glass string quartets including the early String Quartet No.1 (1966) and a world premiere recording of Glass s score to the 1997 film BENT starring Mick Jagger, Clive Owen, and Ian McKellen on this new 2-disc set titled Brooklyn Rider plays Philip Glass. Glass s string quartets include his score to the Samuel Beckett play Company (String Quartet No.2), the Paul Schrader film on the life of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima String Quartet No.3 Mishima and an elegiac remembrance of artist Paul Buczak in String Quartet No.4 Buczak. The fast-rising Brooklyn Rider is violinists Johnny Gandelsman, Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords, and cellist Eric Jacobsen. The group tours extensively in the USA and abroad.

I'm not sure why the previous reviewer is so upset over the liner notes - there are virtually none. Just a list of the group members and a quick statement that are playing P. Glass' music because... As for the music - it is very good and other than "Bent" which is a new recording all of the quartets are slightly different than the original recordings. I don't think the original recordings can be topped - esp. "Mishima" but it's nice to hear a fresh sound.

I have been criticizing Philip Glass music a lot recently as being too focused on composing overblown symphony stuff that all sounds the same. But, this recording brings me back to why I am a big fan of Glass, especially the smaller scale ensemble stuff. Philip Glass music seems to always sound best with a small group of players and this is another example. It sounds great and the pure sound of the instrument, the cello, is most captured here. I say NO MORE SYMPHONIES, and MORE MINIMALISM!!!! I had this on loop in my car driving across the country from NYC to Tucson Arizona and it was awesome!!! The "Bent" stuff is great and the new recordings of "Mishima," etc. are BETTER than Kronos Quartet! Move over Kronos Quartet, here comes Brooklyn Rider!!!

...Are just blah-blah from the "BROOKLIN Riders" more or less about themselves,
