From the Archives: Brooklyn Rider and DJ Spooky in Q2 Music’s Beethoven Remixed

Tuesday June 18 2024 • 11:21am - 11:21am ET

Beethoven’s music – monumental and personal, familiar and ripe for discovery – has inspired and intimidated composers through the ages. The iconic composer’s string quartets were remixed and re-imagined in Q2 Music‘s Beethoven Remixed, a live performance in The Greene Space on November 8, 2012 – part of WQXR’s month-long Beethoven Awareness Month.

The show featured Brooklyn Rider, the adventurous string quartet, and DJ Spooky, the first artist-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Above, watch their memorable ensemble set, Liquid Nocturne:
