To kick off their Season 8 Chamber Series, Palaver Strings presents The First Course, a program of critically acclaimed string quartets throughout the ages.

They begin with Grazyna Bacewicz’s Fourth Quartet, which was entered into the International String Quartet Competition in 1951 at the behest of the Polish Composers’ Union. It was hugely popular and won first prize by a landslide, cementing Bacewicz’s place as one of the foremost Polish composers of all time. They will continue with Voodoo Dolls by acclaimed living composer Jessie Montgomery. Originally written for a dance company, this piece features influences from west African drumming and elements of improvisation.

The program finishes off with Fanny Mendelssohn’s one and only String Quartet in E-flat Major, written later in her life and likely featured at her famous “Sunday Musical Salons” in Berlin.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds; contact MSA at 207-879-4629 or info@mayostreetarts.org for information on our sliding scale admission policy.

Saturday, December 4 from 3:30 - 5:00 PM and from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. Doors open at 3:00 PM and at 6:30 PM
