Orange Mountain Music and the Paula Cooper Gallery present renowned quartet Brooklyn Rider performing the New York premieres of Philip Glass' newest string quartets. Hosted by the Paula Cooper Gallery, where many Glass pieces had their first performances decades ago, Brooklyn Rider will present a program
of Philip Glass' Saxophone Quartet (arranged for strings by BR), String Quartet No.6 (2013) and String Quartet No.7 (2014).
After not composing a numbered quartet since 1991, Glass composed his String Quartet No.6 in 2013 which premiered in Canada. Only a few months later he completed String Quartet No.7 (2014) which premiered as part of a dance piece. This performance marks the New York premieres of both Glass latest quartets.
