Healing Modes pairs Beethoven's late masterpiece (String Quartet opus 132) with 5 new works, which explore the subject of healing from a wide range of historical and cultural perspectives. The healing properties of music have been recognized from ancient greek civilization to the field of modern neuroscience, and expressed in countless global traditions. The slow movement of Beethoven's Opus 132, 'Song of Holy Thanksgiving From a Convalescent to the Deity in the Lydian Mode' is among the most profound expressions of healing in the string quartet repertoire. Beethoven's eternal work is paired with 5 works commissioned for, and premiered by Brooklyn Rider.
