It seems like young violinist Colin Jacobsen is open to just about anything in the world of music. He’s an accomplished composer and has played with ensembles ranging from Yo-Yo-Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, the adventurous ensembles Brooklyn Rider and The Knights, and dance companies including New York City Ballet and the Mark Morris Dance Group. His piece Brooklesca for string quartet plus bass and percussion comes from an appropriately named album, Passport, where Jacobsen shows off his eclectic and energetic style. Also tonight, music of Mikis Theodorakis and Nils Frahm.
