Many American composers strive to balance tradition with a sense of adventure and dynamic individualism, an important part of the American experience for many of us whose families have come from distant lands. How can contemporary concert music present new perspectives on heritage and identity?
Reena Esmail and Gabriela Lena Frank, two of the most exciting and celebrated composers living today, bring dynamic perspectives to this question though their works for string quartet, which you will find as thought provoking as they are stunningly beautiful and evocative. The Arianna Quartet will be your guide in an evening devoted to these fascinating works by two of America’s most vibrant musical voices.
