13 Songs from 13 Different Composers on 180g Vinyl Double LP!

The Brooklyn Rider Almanac is a conceptual album made up of original compositions. For this project, the quartet selected a group of composers to create short works inspired by a creative muse from their relatively recent memory.

Praised for its “stunningly imaginative” performances (Lucid Culture), the adventurous, intrepid string quartet Brooklyn Rider combines a wildly eclectic repertoire with a gripping performance style that continues to attract legions of fans and draw critical acclaim from classical, world, and rock critics.

NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble,” and Vice likens Brooklyn Rider to “motocross daredevils who never screw up a stunt.” At home in both clubs and concert halls, Brooklyn Rider has appeared in venues as varied as New York City’s Joe’s Pub, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Japan’s Todai-ji, the Library of Congress, and the South By Southwest Festival.

Through creative programming and global collaborations, Brooklyn Rider’s “down-to-earth demeanor...demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent” - (Time Out New York).

From Brooklynrider.com:
"Given the diversity in both style — everything from long, sentimental notes to choppy math-mindedness — and technique — clapping and even some vocals — it really felt like anything could happen. And it was all filtered through the quartet’s signature approach to production, which is both big and crisp, with enough reverb to make passages more momentous but enough energy to make the whole exercise feel immediate and personal."
