    Christina Courtin Concert at NYC's Poisson Rouge Airs on Q2's "Cued Up"; Listen Here
    Autumn De Wilde

    Christina Courtin performed at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York's Greenwich Village last month, with the string quartet Brooklyn Rider, longtime and frequent collaborators of hers, opening. The June 12 show was recorded and featured yesterday on Cued Up, the live-concert show from Q2, the new-music internet stream from New York's WQXR. Courtin's set includes songs from her 2009 self-titled Nonesuch album as well as other self-penned tunes and the Pete Townsend classic "Let My Love Open the Door." Brooklyn Rider performs Astor Piazzolla's Four for Tango (which Kronos Quartet recorded on its 1988 Nonesuch album Winter Was Hard) and Philip Glass's Bent.

    "It's an artistic friendship that began over a decade ago when the musicians met at The Juilliard School," says Q2 of Courtin's ties to Brooklyn Rider. "While taking cues from their classical training, these artists have broken down the conventional walls of a music conservatory and are comfortable playing anything from Philip Glass's string quartets to playing backup on Nashville-inspired tunes."
