Fire, water, earth, air: de four classical elements of nature that we once approached with care, respect and maybe even a certain submission. Meanwhile, each of these elements has at least one threatening aftertaste: forest fires, rising sea levels and micro-plastics; lack of space, pollution and the spreading of viruses. Brooklyn Rider, string quartet meets New York hipster rockstars, took four existing compositions and commissioned four composers to reflect on those works, viewed from the current reality. A call to action in music
