Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts will present a performance by string quartet Brooklyn Rider at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at the center, 1073 N. Benson Road. A pre-performance talk with Alan Murchie, Fairfield University adjunct professor of music, will take place at 7:15.

Brooklyn Rider will present a program highlighted by the preview of a new work, "Morris Dance," composed by Ethan Iverson, pianist for the Bad Plus, and inspired by dancer Mark Morris, with whom Iverson used to work.

The program also includes works by Felix Mendelssohn, Igor Stravinsky, Bela Bartók and Lev `Ljova' Zhurbin, according to a release.

Brooklyn Rider is comprised of Johnny Gandelsman on violin, Nicholas Cords on viola, and brothers Colin Jacobsen on violin and Eric Jacobsen on cello.

In 2003, violinist Gandelsman created In A Circle, a series of performance events in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn that explores connections between music and the visual arts.

Tickets, $35 and $30, and subscriptions are available through box office at 203-254-4010 or www.quickcenter.com.
