Weekend links: Armenian cellist; Brooklyn Rider

Remember the cellist whom the conductor derided at the Tchaikovsky Competition last year? He got his revenge by winning, and he performed in Washington on Thursday; Cecelia Porter reviewed the recital.

Robert Battey examined the eclectic program offered by the alt-classical string quartet Brooklyn Rider. (If you missed the concert, you can hear part of the program on their latest CD, Seven Steps.)

Above: You be the judge: here’s an excerpt of Brooklyn Rider’s decidedly quirky take on Beethoven’s Op. 131, from the recording session of their latest CD. Robert Battey had reservations about their performance of the work on Saturday night.
