Sunday, November 26, 2017, 3:00 p.m.

program:
SKALKOTTAS Five Greek Dances
BARTÓK Divertimento
WIRÉN Serenade for Strings
GINASTERA Variaciones Concertantes

With this program, we travel to far-off worlds and explore works of enchanting beauty represented by the composers’ respective countries — Greece, Sweden, Hungary, and Argentina. The first half of the program reflects an inner longing spun from the musical memories of composers Skalkottas and Wirén. The second half features compositions by Bartók and Ginastera. Dramatic and experiential in their immediacy, they combine lyrical romanticism with sophisticated rhythms.
