Brooklyn Rider is an American string quartet lauded for its electrifying performances and progressive vision. Their debut on Mercury Classics reflects the artistic independence and enterprising mix of classic quartet literature and new works that has earned the foursome of violinist Johnny Gandelsman, violinist Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords and cellist Eric Jacobsen such wide acclaim. A Walking Fire features a seminal work by Bartok alongside new works by contemporary Russian composers Lev Zhurbin and Colin Jacobsen. According to Time Out New York, Brooklyn Rider is an ensemble that “demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent.”

A Walking Fire resonates with a spirit of wide-eyed exploration and passionate creation. The album features their signature interpretation of Bartok’s String Quartet No.2. Jacobsen’s Three Miniatures for String Quartet is an irresistibly lyrical musical fantasy stemming from the composer’s appreciation of the close connection between music, poetry and the visual arts in Persian culture.
