Gabriel Kahane with Brooklyn Rider@Celebrity Series / Boston Classical Review

One ensemble and one soloist that stand at the vanguard of genre-bending styles are  Brooklyn Rider  and Gabriel Kahane. Both made strong impressions in Boston last year when they performed as part of the Celebrity Series Stave Sessions.

Schubert's example set the tone for the evening as the quartet and Kahane performed original songs between the movements of the composer's String Quarter in A minor,  Op. 29, known as the Rosamunde. Brooklyn Rider member Nicholas Cords noted from the stage that the combination of string quartets and songs, even interlinked as they were on Friday, were popular fare in Schubertiades.
