The New York-based string quartet Brooklyn Rider (violinists Johnny Gandelsman and Colin Jacobsen, violist Nicholas Cords and cellist Michael Nicolas) have been around for 15 years and released numerous albums featuring works by composers from all across the musical spectrum. They’ve worked with banjo player Bela Fleck, songwriter Gabriel Kahane, and Iranian composer/kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor, and last year, they collaborated with saxophonist Joshua Redman, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Satoshi Takeishi on Sun On Sand, an album of music by composer Patrick Zimmerli.

The best possible two-word review may be the album’s title: it draws listeners inescapably into unseen acts of magic.
