Edgy New York ensemble changes lineup

The busy, buzzy string quartet known as Brooklyn Rider is making its first change after 10 years.

Cellist Eric Jacobsen is getting to be too successful with the baton – he’s music director of the Greater Bridgeport Symphony and the Orlando Philharmonic – so he’s calling it quits.

The new cellist is Michael Nicolas, a member of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and former associate principal cellist of the Montreal Symphony.

Details here and here.
