Orava Quartet: de Falla, Kats-Chernin, Shostakovich & Fischer
Tue 13 September @ 19:30 - 20:30$45 – $55
This performance explores the folk music that binds, comforts and grounds the Orava Quartet. Songs of their grandmothers, from childhood, home and travels in distant lands. Orava Quartet present four great composers whose works cite folk tunes from western and eastern Europe.
From De Falla’s Spain, the Quartet journeys through Greece to Australia in Elena Kats-Chernin’s newest string quartet, sharing stories of maternal hope, tragedy and triumph through four generations of a family. Fischer tells tales of brave heroes and far-away legends, and Shostakovich explores both happiness and loss in his sixth quartet, composed while on honeymoon, in a work seen as the harbinger for his mighty eighth quartet.
