Iconoclastic Brooklyn Rider—which NPR credited with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble” performs a program called Healing Modes that combines Beethoven’s great String Quartet No. 15, Op. 132 with other new works written in response to it.

Healing Modes
