Praised as “fierce, fearless, and virtuosic… unapologetically stylistically omnivorous and versatile” (New Music Box) and “trailblazing…skillful composer-performers” (The New Yorker), The Rhythm Method string quartet strives to re-imagine the string quartet in a contemporary, feminist context. In this performance, the quartet will present a program of music by contemporary Scandinavian composers Kristin Bolstad and Ole-Henrik Moe (Norway); 19th-century Swedish composer Amanda Erika Maier-Röntgen; and The Rhythm Method violinist Leah Asher.
From the complexity of Moe, to the raucous theatricality of Bolstad and energetic intensity of Asher, the contemporary works on this program explore rich and spellbinding sound worlds, and complement Maier-Röntgen’s inspiring string quartet from the Romantic era.
