The Rhythm Method together with Longleash
And Nobody Gets Everything Right
The Rhythm Method presents works which bend, sidestep, or shatter the classical frame of the string quartet, from Dame Elizabeth Maconchy’s concisely dramatic String Quartet No. 3 (1938) to violinist-composer Marina Kifferstein’s extraterrestrial musings in An Alien with Extraordinary Abilities (2017), from Lewis Nielson’s anti-colonialist tour de force Le Journal de Corps (2010) to Kristin Bolstad’s disruptive And Nobody Gets Everything Right (2012).
Leah Asher and Marina Kifferstein, violins
Miranda Sielaff, viola*
Meaghan Burke, cello
Praised for their “uncompromising and unreserved . . . intense, and sensuously gestural” performances (, The Rhythm Method strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary context. Since their founding in 2014, the group has given soulful, spirited performances in New York, Vienna, Paris, and Lucerne, and tackled works ranging from classics by Ligeti and Webern to newer works/premieres by Tonia Ko, Dai Fujikura, Andrew Norman, John Zorn, and other living composers, including members of the ensemble.
